Twitter Suspends More Accounts For 'Coordinated Manipulation'

Exactly what kind of person can be manipulated by a post on Twitter? I'll admit to falling for RIP Morgan Freeman" tweets three times a year but who is really being manipulated by Twitter?

Twitter's long been under fire for its approach to bots and extremist accounts, but now it appears to be taking a more proactive stance towards its community guidelines. Last week it suspended 284 accounts for engaging in what it called "coordinated manipulation," now it's gotten rid of a further 486.
