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

So for the first time in quite a while a newcomer hashtag had top spot on the #Hamilton68 Dashboard -- #walkaway. We remembered seeing this hashtag in the past few weeks but didnt really know what it was or follow up on it. #infosec #opsec dashboard.securingdemocracy.org
The background story on this hashtag #walkaway is a little strange & the number of bots, trolls, & fake testimonial promoting this hashtag is even stranger. Here's an example of a completely fake tweet highlighted by @daveweigel #opsec #infosec
We decided to look retrospectively at our own reverse engineered #Hamilton68 data. This is a wordcloud of 22893 tweets from our main Hamilton68 troll subset going from June 24th until now & #walkaway takes the #1 spot. #infosec #opsec
