Researchers find that accounts run from a St Petersburg troll farm tried to sow discord between Britons over the referendum

Concern about Russian influence in British politics has intensified as it emerged that more than 400 fake Twitter accounts believed to be run from St Petersburg published posts about Brexit.

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh identified 419 accounts operating from the Russian Internet Research Agency (IRA) attempting to influence UK politics out of 2,752 accounts suspended by Twitter in the US.

One of the accounts run from the Kremlin-linked operation attempted to stir anti-Islamic sentiment during the Westminster Bridge terror attack in March in a bogus post claiming a Muslim woman ignored victims – a claim that was highlighted by mainstream media outlets including Mail Online and the Sun.

For days after, the tweeter was gleefully sharing press clippings. “Wow … I’m on the Daily Mail front page! Thank you British libs! You’re making me famous,” he said, referring to an article that appeared on Mail Online and which still bore the tweet at the time of writing.

>>573736

So if you have things like CAIR, and i'm sure similar organizations in european countries, which have an active and open agenda of propagandizing muslims, Why do we never hear about any muslim countries running sock accounts trying to influence things? Only white people do that? Kind of strange how the russian narrative is pushed, but no way china is operating accounts to influence whatever the hell they are interesting. Or hell even Japan or other allies. Because if we were to talk about how every advanced nation, and probably any nation that has internet access, is doing this exact same thing it seems far less ominous that the RUSSIANS are doing it, you fucking McCarthy wannabe.

400 accounts tweeting? 400. How many millions of people voted? 400 accounts probably swung a good 15 or 20 million right? because otherwise, if they influenced a few hundred people, you wouldn't have a big scary narrative, you would just have another internet faction doing what people on the internet do.
