Huawei

Chinese tech giant Huawei was caught this week creating phony Twitter accounts to push their products in Belgium. The accounts consisted of phantom tech reviewers and experts who spoke positively of Huawei products. Leo says while Huawei was only caught doing what all tech companies have done, and while it's against Twitter TOS, they haven't really enforced it all that much. Even the FCC has been caught doing it to push an anti-net neutrality position.
