Twitter said Monday that it has suspended an account named "ANTIFA_US" which it says was tied to the white nationalist group Identity Evropa.
Over the weekend, the account had called for violence and its posts had widely circulated online.
It's also the latest example of Twitter more aggressively rooting out false information on its platform.
"This account violated our platform manipulation and spam policy, specifically the creation of fake accounts," a Twitter representative told Axios.
"We took action after the account sent a Tweet inciting violence and broke the Twitter Rules.".
Twitter has previously taken action on other fake accounts linked to the Identity Evropa group, including ones engaged in targeted hate focused on race, religion and sexual orientation.
The big picture: Twitter has become more active in holding to account those promoting violence on its platform. »
