I ran across a cluster of twitter accounts targeting multiple different countries. They are newly minted accounts supported by multiple networks of #Bots #Trolls and inauthentic accounts. I haven't figured out of it's a #spam network or #disinformation

The most logical explanation is spam. BUT the amount of bots the trolls that retweet these accounts is extremely suspect.
these accounts were found while looking around at some data I pulled from this set of accounts in this thread.

Just found another 250+ of these accounts.
This time tweeting all the way back during the republican national convention 2016.
It's more than likely these are #cryptocurrency #spam #bots with some political work thrown in.
Some sample tweets they boosted during the #RNCinCLE
