    Arrow Shut (Down) Accounts

    Barclays shuts BNP bank accounts - Telegraph
    Barclays will shut about five accounts linked to the BNP, not all of which are registered in the party's name, a source said.
    Lady Gaga's YouTube channel shut down - Telegraph
    Google, which owns YouTube, declined to comment. the site's policy is to shut down accounts after three copyright violations.
    It seems that "shut" and "shut down", in the sense of "account termination" are used interchangeably. Could there be nuances only known to native readers?
