(Reuters) – the Suspicious traffic to a Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) user forum seems to be part of a government sponsored activity comes from China and Saudi Arabia, a Twitter spokesperson told Reuters via e-mail on Monday.
The company does not know the reason for the activity, but notified users earlier on Monday out of an abundance of caution, the spokesman said.
