We downloaded tweets from the last 10 days containing "media", "freedom", and "RT" or "Sputnik" and filtered out a couple of early false positives. 9.4% of tweets are automated (average for most datasets of this sort is roughly 3%).
The first on-topic tweet about RT/Sputnik being barred from the conference came from @BotsPutin, which probably isn't a bot although many of the other early accounts to tweet about the subject are in fact automated (mostly newsbots linking custom collections of news sites.)

We have been checking the #TwitterBlackout hashtag for signs of automated activity. We didn't find a lot in terms of volume, but did happen upon a pair of intriguing #resistance bots (@MiamiPapers and @jgionova) that retweet tweets containing the hashtag.

(we ran across @MiamiPapers once before, when it retweeted this #tacocat #resist tweet that was posted with the goal of attracting bots)
Both @MiamiPapers and @jgionova are automated via custom software, both claim connection to Miami on their profiles, both were created in July 2016, and both of their feeds consist almost exclusively of retweets. What do they retweet?

I finally forced myself to watch @ava’s #13th on @netflix. I know I am massively tardy to the party, but racial documentaries are hard for me. It was, of course, devastating, so I’m glad I’m grading at home today so I can process, seethe, mourn & completely avoid wypipo.
My first reaction was “Fuck, this [the systemic oppression of black people & destruction of black lives] is never going to end. Not until we upend every last piece of the existing systems.” Then I sat overwhelmed & crying bc the earth/humanity may not last long enough for that.
And let’s be clear, I read The New Jim Crow years ago (which is why I felt like I didn’t *need* to watch 13th), but watching the documentary tie these legacies to images/audio of #NotMyPresident brought it home in a new way emotionally for me rather than just intellectually.

Teman2 01 tapi jangan terlena hasil polling ya. Tetap ke TPS & pastikan suara kita mengantarkan Pak Jokowi menang. ❤️
@ezkisuyanto Feeling gw sekarang semua orang sudah menentukan pilihan dengan mantap. Mau 01, 02, atau golput. Undecided gak banyak. Yang bisa bikin Jokowi kalah? Ya kalo pendukungnya overconfident lalu males ke TPS.
@ezkisuyanto Ini terjadi ketika Hillary Clinton kalah sama Donald Trump. Banyak anak muda yg ga nyoblos, hasilnya Clinton malah kalah tipis. Abis itu baru panik, koar2 di demo #NotMyPresident. Yeeeeee makanya nyoblos, dul! 😞😞😞

Honestly I always believed this was a distraction/stunt. Everything is PR & staging in this administration, for this narcissist. He can’t get anything actually done legislatively so he creates crises to “solve” & be the “hero” 🙄
And honestly, there are so many ways this administration is doing serious long term damage to disabled communities. Special Olympics does good work but it IS a private org. We need funding for education, work training programs, healthcare & accessible infrastructure.

And some, I assume, are good avocados. 🥑🥑🥑

Hiiiii. One small rant before I get to work regarding the #CovingtonCatholic students. (FWIW I went to a nearby Catholic school Newport Central Catholic & dated a guy at CovCath my senior year of HS so I grew up in this very area & community)
Reports claim black men were harassing the white students with “racist & homophobic slurs.” Let me make one thing clear f*ggot is a slur that has been reclaimed by some gay men but is not acceptable for use as an insult, especially from straight folks.
That said: White boy & cracker, ARE NOT RACIST SLURS. There are no racist slurs for white ppl bc white surpremacy is the structure of racism which aids rather than harms white ppl. No one was racist toward those kids. White men in #MAGA hats are the embodiment of racism.

thanks to @AshaRangappa_ for pointing out these foreign IFTTT bots:
55 of them.
All created at the same time.
Bios have some version of these hashtags:
#NotMyPresident #TheResistance #FuckTrump #FBR #TRE45ON #TreasonousTrump

twitter list here:…
here you can see they all share similar stats.
and have their twitter UI set to "id" or Ino6jt3EYAu5
They are "trying" to use IFTTT to retweet specific accounts, but they didn't set it up c555qwlswtl

There are some folks on Twitter who are trying to restate this as “Russia had nothing to do with what happened IN Charlottesville”, only the aftermath.

That’s wrong. That’s not what @CNN is reporting - that Russian meddling contributed to the violence.
The Hill reminds us:

“The Wall Street Journal in October reported that Facebook groups with ties to Russia posted racially divisive messages ahead of Charlottesville”

Ahead of it. Russia encouraged the violence that happened, as CNN correctly reports.…
You need not only propaganda, you need proximity, for violence to occur. What @RepTomGarrett is reporting the FBI told lawmakers reminds of the Russian hashtag #NotMyPresident used, in the Mueller indictment, to schedule pro- and anti- Trump rallies in NYC on the *same day*.

I would ask that everybody take a moment to report @conspirator0 and @ZellaQuixote for targeted, anti Semitic harassment of me and of my family. These two men have imposed a Pepe over my face @TwitterSupport. My husband is Jewish, and 8chan attacked our family physically. THREAD
In 2016, a number of anti Trump journalists including me, the then editor of @HeatStreet, had our home addresses published on the altright website 8chan, home of Pepe the anti Semitic frog. Which @conspirator0 and @ZellaQuixote just imposed over my face.…
This followed @Wikileaks and @JulianAssange publishing my unredacted email and phone number. Our doorbell rung throughout the night waking my children, the youngest of whom was eight. NYPD put extra security on our street. Pepe fans pushed racist memes through door @conspirator0

It's been asserted that the #Resistance and associated hashtags are a Kremlin social media operation. @ZellaQuixote and myself decided to try testing this statistically.
We performed a few statistical comparisons between the hashtags alleged to be Kremlin-related (#BlueWave2018, #FBR, #NotMyPresident, #Resist, #Resistance, #TheResistance) with the hashtags that were pushed by the Internet Research Agency per Mueller's February indictment.
First, are these hashtags being pushed by botnets? We tested for some traits associated with bots (24/7 operation, use of automation services, default profile pic). The hashtags from the indictment score higher across the board than the #Resistance ones.

So, I know lots of people are saying lots of things about the treason weasel president. I'm not surprised yesterday happened, but we aren't talking enough about how pathetic he looked trailing behind Putin yesterday.
I mean, Trump looked EMASCULATED. All of that bullying BS and bluster was gone, like his crusty ugly soul had been snatched out of him by Putin. Any Republican still braying about him as powerful is a fool.
I mean, we all knew he was unfit, but yesterday, he was a abject loser who could barely read the statement on the page. Sorry, but GRU has more than a pee tape on this man.

1. Ah, the Senate Intelligence Committee report on Obama's Intelligence Community Assessment. They excluded 14 IC agencies due to the sensitivity of the sources & methods. Like concealing the fact that Steele, through multiple channels was the only source.…
2. I'm quite certain they met Obama's tasking objectives! But the HPSCI already showed they did not follow analytical procedures. As they state, they took the agencies' word on that the intelligence was accurately portrayed in the ICA. We'll see!
3. You don't have to politically pressure people to reach a conclusion when they hand selected a team who would do so without pressure. Such as Peter Strzok who lead the FBI team. Especially if you also select what intelligence reporting you are going to consider & what to ignore

This is absolutely true, although it could have been better phrased, as “Trump haters” leads the eye to think @marcorubio is talking about despising Trump. He isn’t - he’s talking about hate for the millions of Americans who voted for Trump or support him.

And he is correct.
I hope by now it’s reasonably plain that I detest @realDonaldTrump and hold him in contempt. The same isn’t true for Trump’s ordinary supporters. Those are my fellow Americans, whom I cherish. We are one people. If you despise 1/3 of all Americans, you’re only helping Putin.
Patriots, we live in too much of a bubble. Trolls target our fellow Americans, with fake news, fake friends. As we saw from Mueller’s indictment, RU sends actual humans here to infiltrate real groups. #NotMyPresident was a Russian op. Is it in your profile?

Thread. #Counterprop Why the “kids separated from parents by force” is Russian propaganda and why the left dutifully fell for it, once again.
A goal of counterpropaganda efforts has to be educating Americans so they can see Russia interferes in the left AND the right. We learned that from Mueller in the indictments of the 13 Russians - #NotMyPresident, anyone?
Russia wants to sow chaos, fear, and spread division. It takes real issues, distorts and poisons them. In this case Russian troll nets pretending to be “Resistance”, have massively distorted the facts on unaccompanied children, vast majority of whom arrived here unaccompanied

The problem with “#SHITHOLE”.
I do not give a shit about “anyone” including our #SHITHOLEPresident using the word SHITHOLE! That is just a stupid vulgar word. Our #SHITHOLEPresident should never have used it, But…

#Resistance #Resist #VetsResistSquadron

There are many problems surrounding our #SHITHOLEPresident and his #SHITHOLE comments, but my issues are twofold, (ONE). the full contextual meaning of what he said, and

#Resistance #Resist #VetsResistSquadron #VetsResist

(TWO). the level of his ignorance and negative impact it is having on the global community.

1. When viewed in full context, the use of the word #SHITHOLE by our #SHITHOLEPresident is total undeniable #xenophobic.

#Resistance #Resist #VetsResistSquadron
