The moderators of the popular social networks have removed hundreds of accounts that are illegally used by inmates. About it reports The Guardian.

According to the publication, the number of blocked pages over the past few years has tripled. If in 2015, the moderators deleted the profile 152, then in 2017, the figure had increased to 527 accounts.

According to experts, many inmates have active profiles on most major social networks, including Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. The use of these resources in prisons significantly complicates the work of supervisors, as they are unable to fully control the interaction of the prisoners with the outside world. In addition, criminals using social networks can harm the victims and even threaten national security.

Experts believe that this deplorable situation is due to lack of staff and the reluctance of prison administration to solve the problem.

In April of this year, the network famous American prisoner Tyler Burris, who managed to access Twitter from prison. The man immediately declared himself a God of electronics and began to insult the offenders.
