More than 62,000 Twitter accounts were shut down every month in the last half of 2016 because of links to terrorism.
The company reported Tuesday that it pulled down 376,890 terrorist-related accounts from July 2016 through December 2016. Twitter said 74% of extremist accounts were found by "internal, proprietary spam-fighting tools".
Government requests to pull down accounts for promoting terrorism only accounted for 2 percent of suspensions for that reason.
