Information previously classified, but has now been downgraded by US Officials so they could more freely discuss it, found Russian GRU intelligence officers are spreading disinformation about the #coronavirus pandemic through English-language websites. nytimes.com/aponline/2020/…
Two Russians, Denis Valeryevich Tyurin & Aleksandr Gennadyevich Starunskiy, have held senior roles in Moscow’s military intelligence service known as the GRU & have been identified as responsible for a #disinfo effort meant to reach American and Western audiences #osint #InfoOps
The three English websites that were singled out in the report were InfoRos[.]ru, Infobrics[.]org and OneWorld[.]press. A fourth site that targets a French audiences also appears to be linked ObservateurContinental[.]fr #disinfo #osint #InfoOps #infosec

Yikes this Tara Reade stuff is collapsing under the sheer weight of the ridiculousness. This is some impressive Jacob Wohl type stuff. I didn't realize Ms #TaraReade was into writing romance novels. #osint #metoo usatoday.com/story/opinion/…
Its interesting that in 2017 Ms #TaraReade (or Mccabe as she used to like to be called) seemed quite fond of Joe Biden. Remind me again when her newly concocted "rape" story occurred again? #osint #metoo cc @chrislhayes
I am started to wonder if that is really her writing the tweets for her new Twitter account @/ReadeAlexandra ...this is some really odd bedfellows ... Russian produced anti-Ukraine documentaries? Even I had to look this up. #osint #metoo

Wow big story I just saw from @donie on a @cnnbrk undercover investigation by @clarissaward & her team revealing a Russian linked troll farm in Ghana Africa. One of the accnts they highlight is @africamustwake. We reported on that & a couple others last wk
Here's our thread from last wk on 4 tightly connected #BLM accnts that we identified a while back & had added to our new alt-left #Hamilton68 set of Kremlin-aligned twitter trolls. Can't believe they turned out 2b Russian outsourced accounts based in Ghana
This is a set of some of the accounts we also found. I guess we will find out soon enough from Twitter as I am assuming they will make this suspended data set available. @AfricaMustWake

Building upon our thread that we started earlier in the wk ... we have done further analysis on the hashtags that coalesced at the end of January & into the beginning of February #demexit, #boohillary, #walkaway & #dncrigging. Walkway is a pro-MAGA product
As I mentioned #Walkaway long ago got turned into an enduring pro-MAGA product so we left that out for this. We were among the first groups to out this inorganic campaign in 2018. This chart shows participation of the Kremlin-aligned #hamilton68 and the Domestic #the200 groups
As I stated in the previous thread on Feb 1st the start (#boohillary) or reoccurrence of #demexit & #dncrigging started organically mostly here in the US. However other suspect accnts did participate with additional tweets, retweets and likes (which we currently don't measure)

The pro-MAGA & #qanon account @surfermom77 outed the whistleblower by name in a tweet & then President Trump preceded to retweet the surfermom77 tweet on Saturday ... effectively further outing the whistleblower to his 68 million followers bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
The surfermom77 account has morphed & repackaged itself numerous times & the @mikefarb1 thread does a good job documenting that. Although not in our #Hamilton68 or #the200 lists, we will document a number of other interesting things about this surfer mom.
One small comment about @mikefarb1 thread, we need 2b careful about interchanging GRU accounts with IRA trolls. They r & function very differently. GRU typically don't run high volume, influential social media accounts. The paid grunts do that (IRA trolls)

Back in late August of this yr the account @ArizonaKayte was suspended by Twitter. I have no idea why ... however this account was of note given it was one of the top most influential accounts within the Domestic pro-MAGA troll group called the #Mighty200 or also called #the200
It was found that the account @ArizonaKayte from #the200 was in the top 6 most retweeted by the primary dataset of alt-right accounts (top 57393 users) h/t @r0zetta from F-secure #infosec #disinfo #magatrolls #osint
The account @ArizonaKayte was commonly found in large Trump Train follow back tweets and still appears even months after its suspension. See the screenshot on the right from 2 days ago #infosec #disinfo #magatrolls #osint

#BREAKING: Trump asked the President of Ukraine to investigate @Crowdstrike, a now publicly traded company $CRWD that 1st determined state-sponsored Russian hackers hacked the DNC. There is no server in Ukraine .. but that's beside the point #infosec
Here's our thread on @crowdstrike from 07-24-19 documenting the continued propaganda efforts coming from the Kremlin 2 smear & muddy the waters on something that has been fact 4 a number of yrs & confirmed in the Mueller report #infosec #osint #Hamilton68
This is a good breakdown of the Ukraine call with Zelensky and spells out numerous problematic sections #UkraineTranscript

With #Election2016 victory #DonaldTrump crashed headlong into a developing technological #SocialEngineering power play spearheaded by #BigTech #EU, multi-generational #foundation wealth #media and #DARPA vet #ReginaDugan, #ClintonFoundation ally:
Tech world rock star of the time, #ReginaDugan #DARPA, later #Google #Facebook, addresses #ClintonGlobalInitiative 2013 Annual Meeting with the #SocialEnginering mantra: "The future is a story that is collectively written, with US AS ENGINEERS AND ARCHITECTS IN IT'S BUILDING."
#BREXIT and #DonaldTrump election created panic in #Globalist #DeeperState #EU, foundation governance structure. Ignoring military containment of #Russian aggression to continue in #populist regimes, fake fear of #Russia fueled US imports like the #SteeleDossier #RussiaHoax

More of the Steele #Dossier appeared to be confirmed by a new report yesterday. "Russian IRA trolls pumped out malware along with pro-Trump messages" They used link shorteners that appear 2b specific 2 a Webzilla client based in Poland #FISA #SteeleDossier
While doing research on the new Mcclatchy report we saw alot of "eggplant" accounts pushing out propaganda that Steele Dossier was fake or Russian disinformation. More "eggplant" accnts (new accounts with no profile pic) on message than we've seen in a long time #disinfo #infosec
In fact there were a number of stories yesterday from conservative & alt-right websites like RedState, TruePundit, and Daily Caller pushing the theme that Steele Dossier was fake. A tweet from Sen. Rand Paul was also a popular retweet #FISA #SteeleDossier #FusionGPS

We did an interesting analysis a few days ago where we compared the Twitter wordclouds between our #Hamilton68 subset of trolls focused on US politics to that of the group of mostly American activists called #the200". They were featured here in politico politico.com/story/2019/02/…
First the domestic subset of our Russian influencer #Hamilton68 accts. Jussie Smollett featured more prominently which makes sense as provoking racial division has been a successful core strategy since 2016. #walkaway & #creepypornlawyer were also more prominent --#disinfo #osint
Over the same period of time a wordcloud was generated 4 #the200 group of accnts. Actually now roughly 180 due 2 Twitter suspensions. With the exception of the hashtags in red like #buildthewall & #aag which is the call sign 4 one of the accnts, there was overlap with #hamilton68

1) Many in the swamp sit on multiple boards and it is easy to overstate connections. Some connections are deeper than others. In my opinion, THIS is one of the deepest.

So finally got to the newest #Hamilton68 wordclouds. A few interesting things to note. First up the subset of #hamilton68 twitter troll accounts focused on US politics. This is 62k tweets from between Feb 27th through Mar 2nd. #infosec #disinfo #osint #psyops
These #Hamilton68 accounts were promoting #cpac2019, not surprisingly the controversy surrounding #IlhanOmar and a couple interesting smaller new hashtags #the200 and #themighty200 that I will discuss later in the thread. Also of note is the minimal attention to Tulsi Gabbard.
Looking at the #Hamilton68 subset of accounts focused on Russian geopolitics the conflict in Venezuela (#HandsOffVenezuela) was featured and new was the conflict between India and Pakistan. The #integrityinitiative continued to be a focus and again Tulsi was not that prominent

1) @MischaEDM is correct. #BlueFocus #BlueVision is a problem. I would not be surprised if tied into Integrity Initiative, et al. At a minimum same model.

2) See this here? This is China's Integrity Initiative who is ALSO working with our precious Silicon Valley. I am just now looking into this and putting enough information in this thread for other researchers to get started.

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

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

Finally we are able to analyze the most common URL use from a subset of #Hamilton68 accounts. Many many thanks to @Saill for all the scripting work on this. We now have a ton of additional data that can be analyzed. #infosec #opsec #osint
This is the top 25 URLs used by the #Hamilton68 subset of accnts focused on Russian Geopolitics. The most recent 3000 tweets from each of 125 accts were analyzed. 375000 tweets total. Fairly expected results & shows the prominence of Youtube & Facebook use. #infosec #opsec #osint
Further down the list in top 35-56 range revealed more interesting sites being used by these accnts. Ria(.)ru is a fairly new Russian media site housed at the same location as the Russian IRA troll farm. Stalkerzone is well known disinfo site #infosec #opsec #osint #hamilton68

Just ran our #Hamilton68 accounts and here are the top hashtags being promoted over the past 48 hrs by two of the main troll subsets. One focused on US politics and one focused on Russian geopolitics. No big surprise #CovingtonCatholic cracked the list #infosec #opsec #psyops
A friend helped do a quick analysis of last ~3000 tweets from 24 core #Hamilton68 accounts in my US domestic subset -- 73165 tweets in total. Here were the top accounts retweeted. We removed all known Hamilton68 accts from this list. Yellow are known/verified accts. Thx @saill
Guessing a lot of you will recognize some of the accounts on this list. Just because we haven’t been able to reverse engineer them as Hamilton68 accounts doesn’t mean there aren’t a few suspect ones on this list.

Just before Christmas we looked at #Hamilton68 accounts who focus on Russian geopolitics and how they were stoking the #giletsjaunes conflict in France. We noticed a new hashtag #integrityinitiative (red arrow) .. #infosec #osint #opsec
We didn't think much about this over the holidays but revisited it in early January 2019. Turns out the the #integrityinitiative had become even more prominent and prompted additional research .. #infosec #osint #opsec
We did a hoaxy analysis of the #integrityinitiative hashtag on January 5th and noticed two major nodes of well-known #Hamilton68 accounts .. @Ian56789 and @ShoebridgeC ... #infosec #osint #opsec

A fascinating thread ...dont think 4 a minute that the only propaganda / misinformation campaigns come from Russia ... there are plenty of domestic operations going on right now. In this case a Wall Street Hedge Fund manager posing as a #Bernie2020 acolyte
As @HoarseWisperer alertly posted, this Hedge Fund manager is running a disinfo / troll campaign against @ewarren and her supporters. If ur reasonably intelligent, I think you can figure out why a wallstreet Hedge Fund manager might be behind promoting #Bernie2020 #infosec
No idea right now how much of the "we want Bernie" tweets to @ewarren are from trolls, cyborgs and bots. Guessing like ourselves lots of other groups are scrambling to collect the data for analysis. #infosec #opsec #osint

Get this. The founder of #Hamilton68 was a CIA consultant. Add that gem to him being former FBI and Brookings Institute sure makes it inch closer to being an arm of Crossfire Hurricane👁‍🗨
PS- Different Brennan.
A quick recap of Brookings from @The_War_Economy, who long ago said the focus should be CIA.
Clint also testified before Senate twice about RUSSHAAA and is highly cited by pretty much every Democrat. Some even credit him for Mueller’s charges against Internet Research Agency🤡

The alt-right is in an interesting quandary. They want 2 argue #projectbirmingham, a small social media disinfo experiment by a handful of Dem activists affected the outcome in Alabama Senate race ...but not social media disinfo efforts by Russia, a nation state in 2016? #psyops
Some background on #projectbirmingham .... if everything from the original NYT story is true about this domestic disinfo campaign against #RoyMoore then yes I am against this as much as I am against what Russia did in the 2016 elections. #infosec #ALsen
NEW: This is a strong denial from the New Knowledge CEO Jonathan Morgan, including the part about the creation of fake Cyrillic Russian bots ... so someone has some explaining to do #ProjectBirmingham #infosec

Given that a common modus operandi for Russian influencer #Hamilton68 accnts is to sow division & weaken US groups & political parties, the upcoming speaker of the House election & whether Rep. Nancy Pelosi would again get the nod seemed like an obvious target. #infosec #osint
Searching our archived tweet data on about 350 #Hamilton68 accounts, sure enough these accounts had been injecting themselves into the debate on the upcoming Pelosi election. One particular tweet to a simple thegatewaypundit.com article caught our eye.
Displayed here are some example Tweets pushing this simple video posting. What is displayed here are not necessarily verified #Hamilton68 accounts, many are just activist accounts. #infosec #osint
