Twitter is cracking down on well known Antifa accounts following numerous riots on Inauguration Day. According to reports Friday, at least four accounts were suspended.

The move follows numerous Antifa-led riots in recent months, including a highly destructive one in Seattle on Inauguration Day.

Among those reportedly suspended, one linked to an extremist bookstore in Brooklyn, New York that allegedly also operated as a training center for Antifa members.

Twitter noted the group had violated the platform’s rules, but offered no specifics as to which policy had been broken.
