A few wks ago new words in the wordclouds of our domestic subset of #Hamilton68 Russian sympathizer accnts appeared on the topic of abortion. President Trump has been bleeding support among evangelicals & campaigns #walkaway & #buildthewall have proved ineffective #infosec #osint
It makes sense the #GOP would go back 2 their time tested political issue of abortion. And in this case push the most emotionally charged fringe like late-term abortions. The #Hamilton68 subset focused on Russian geopolitics showed a steady uptick around the topic #infosec #osint
We also looked at another #Hamilton68 subset that focuses on US Politics and contains a high level foreign sourced accounts & saw the same thing. This subset showed a dramatic increase in terms like abortion and late-term abortion. Something we've not seen before #infosec #osint

This #smollett story is a runaway train and a complete mess. Actual CPD detectives saying rumors circulating are not true. Safe to say at this point anything could be true and anything could be false. #disinfo #fakenews
When you have these as your major #Twitter nodes & 9% bot participation 4 the #Smollett story I think you can safely say its best to turn off #foxnews & #cnn, let the dust settle and come back in a few days to let "sourced" reporting bubble to the top. #infosec #disinfo #fakenews
OMG ... I mean why not double down on the crazy and say one of the 2020 presidential candidates also helped plan a hoax which may in fact itself be a hoax on #smollett. Who knows? #walkaway from unsourced news reporting #disinfo and #fakenews #infosec #psyops

Last wk we noticed that an entire subset of our #Hamilton68 accounts had been suspended in mass. We have seen suspended accounts from time to time but not a whole set. To be clear these were bot accnts so it made sense they would all get suspended at once. #infosec #osint
We determined from our archive that they were mostly suspended around January 26th and this was the last tweet in our archive. #infosec #hamilton68 #osint
Some searching on Twitter & we found that our fellow bothunters @conspirator0 & @ZellaQuixote had already put out this excellent thread on Jan 24th outing most of the accounts in this small botnet. I apologize 4 missing it at the time #infosec #hamilton68

I hadn't considered Hamilton 68, Investigate Russia, or Integrity Initiative upon looking into legalized govt propaganda.

I imagine we could find a few links between these organizations.

Speaking of propaganda:

Everyone's heard about Obama's deal with Netflix, right? What about his use of OFA to fund his digital active measures campaign?

It's the new R&D side of the DNC. They're privately funded & already taking over liberal media.

Pentagon spokesperson on Syria strikes: โ€œThe Russian disinformation campaign has already begun. There has been a 2,000% increase in Russian trolls in the last 24 hours."

...a few comments on this.

<thread>
Let me start by saying: Yes, the #disinfo campaign surrounding Syria is very real and very much underway. But it's troubling that a Pentagon spokesperson can't clearly articulate what that means, what it looks like, and what it entails.

For one thing, the disinformation campaign surrounding Syria didn't just begin. It's been going on for a long time, and it has never ceased.

Here are a few examples โ€” from October 2016.
