The following article, Twitter Bans Krassenstein Brothers For Operating Fake Accounts, Buying Interactions, was first published on Big League Politics.
On Thursday evening, the accounts of the well-known Twitter trolls Ed and Brian Krassenstein were suspended.

My prediction is because they were using Bots and Growth hacks that go against Twitter TOS. pic.twitter.com/vaDbVRrY7r

The two became both famous and infamous for their constant replies to President Donald Trump’s Twitter feed, generally with calls for his impeachment.
Between the two, they had nearly 2 million Twitter followers, and were often the top response to Trump’s Tweets.
With their suspensions, it appears to answer why they were always on top.
According to a Twitter spokesman they were engaging in inauthentic behavior by operating fake accounts and buying account interactions:
“Operating multiple fake accounts and purchasing account interactions are strictly prohibited. Engaging in these behaviors will result in permanent suspension from the service.”
Big League Politics reached out to Ed and Brian Krassenstein, who were not immediately available for comment.
But their partner at their “news” website Hill Reporter, James Kosur, confirmed the suspensions, but stated that he has not received a response from Twitter.
We are not sure why and we’re currently awaiting a response from Twitter.
