Twitter blocking users who were underage when they signed up

In an effort to comply with GDPR, Twitter is blocking users who were underage when they signed up for the service – even if they’re now well over 18.

The company instituted a wave of account suspensions on 25 May, the day the new privacy regulation came into effect, locking the accounts of any user whose self-declared date of birth suggested that they may have been under 13 at the point they signed up for the account.
