I can still find tens of thousands of russia's bots online but for some reason twitter refuses to count them as "internet research agency" accounts.

I have given them something like 45,000 accounts so far, but we still have only around 4000 accounts listed by twitter officially.
not sure what's going on that the accounts can't be connected to the troll factory. But they are doing the same thing that is in this report. Bitly short links.
I mean these are literally THE BEST EXAMPLES of russian troll twitter accounts you can find on the internet.

they shared the white house petition: ALASKA BACK TO RUSSIA.

But twitter won't flag them as IRA accounts?

Trump is freaking out tweeting attacks on McCain, Steele Dossier, DEMs & RT’g ludicrous conspiracy theories.

Get this, Rudy alledges Cohen lied to Congress therefore Flynn’s indictment should be dismissed.🙄

Something is in the pipeline that has them terrified...

FYI: McCain gave dossier to FBI in 12/9/2016.

Trump cannot pardon co-conspirators involved in the same criminal act(s) in which he is involved.

Trump’s SDNY legal probs are massive. Trump Org, & Foundation are under a forensic microscope.

This is #DanyeJones. His mom, Melissa McKinnies, is a #Ferguson Activist.

Danye was found hanging from a tree in his mom’s backyard on 10/17. The police didn’t investigate, but called it a suicide.

But Danye has just bought property to sell & his mother knows this isn’t true.
#DanyeJones is at least the 4th person related to the #Ferguson uprising to die in more than suspicious circumstances.

This is a pattern.…
Here’s #DanyeJones advertising his business a month before his death. No, this isn’t fake-I got the screengrab myself.

His mother said he had just made posts about looking forward to 2019.

And remember: the police did the same to #SandraBland.

It's with a heavy heart that we closed the doors to @WellspringSTL. I wanted to share some of my experiences at this beautiful church. (thread incoming)
I first attended the Well on the 1st anniversary of #MikeBrown's death, August 2015. Upon arrival, a later familiar face greeted me with a hearty "Good morning and welcome to Wellspring!" I then received a hug from another friend-to-be and was shown to my seat with a coffee.
The service was both memorial and call to action; something must be done to stop these police killings. I had participated in the Boston marches last year, but @FWillisJohnson delivered a sermon that truly stirred my spirit. What soon transpired was a life-changing journey.

So in this "report" twitter checked @realDonaldTrump and @HillaryClinton's twitter engagements with Russian trolls/bots.
