Twitter has initiated a purge of the accounts of major alt-right supporters, The Daily Caller reports.

The wiping of the accounts began just one week after Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, according to the news site.

Richard Spencer — president of the National Policy Institute, a think tank that studies white identity and similar policy issues — said his account was yanked on Tuesday and told The Caller:

"This is corporate Stalinism. Twitter is trying to airbrush the Alt Right out of existence. They're clearly afraid. They will fail!"

The National Policy Institute's official account and its online magazine were also reportedly axed.

Other suspended alt-right users include Pax Dickinson, Ricky Vaughn and John Rivers, The Daily Caller said.

In a statement to The Caller, Twitter officials said:

"Our hateful conduct policy prohibits specific conduct that targets people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease."
