I’m tweeting from #StratComDC today. Listening to an interesting conversation about China’s multi-dimensional information operations. One of the key strategies for influencing opinion abroad is using economic power as leverage. No better example than the recent case of the NBA.
.@EileenDonahoe talking about disheartening lack of political will and leadership to tackle election security in US, including disinfo & voter suppression. Also rightly highlights significant role of domestic political actors using disinfo to “divide & conquer.” #StratComDC
Incredible story from @rama_rajeswari, a district police chief in India, on how she combatted a video spread on WhatsApp through the country saying a gang was kidnapping children. It led to 40 people being killed. For 45 days, strangers to any village were attacked. #StratComDC

The Atlantic Council’s @JohnEdHerbst introduces @GenMhayden who will close out #StratComDC.

“One of the good features of American life is how distinguished officials don’t simply disappear when they leave office. They remain part of the national conversation.” 1/
For his talk closing #StratComDC, @GenMhayden says he’ll approach his talk as an intelligence officer: “The Russians did it…to mess with our heads ✅ …to Punish Hillary Clinton because [Putin] hates her ✅ …to invalidate & delegitimize the inevitable President Clinton ✅…” 2/
“Jim Clapper says something I do not say… Jim says in his book ‘They flipped the vote’,” says @GenMhayden.

“I do not say that. I firmly believe they affected the vote but the effect itself is not just unknown but unknowable.”

⚡️“Right now there are 1000s and 1000s of fingers hard at work to penetrate your psyche”—Lyudmila Savchuk, activist who infiltrated Russia’s notorious Internet Research Agency propaganda troll farm named in Mueller indictment, speaking at #StratComDC. #disinformation @ACEurasia
That was amazing. Lyudmila Savchuk told of her breakdown after infiltrating Russia’s engine of world wide political warfare—Internet Research Agency troll factory in St Petersburg. Most shocking to her: They—fake persona disinformation operations—are everywhere.

.@apolyakova: Russia didn’t invent new technology. It exploited already available PR tools. They spread disinformation the way @Nike sells sneakers. The strategy is “firehose of falsehood”—drowning out information space (& truth) in a sea of planted propaganda. #StratComDC

This is the woman that had the @StateDept and others listening closely years ago when she gave us the first reports of the Internet Research Agency. Meet @Savchuk_L
She literally walked right in to the troll farm. #stratcomDC
Why be a troll? You can get paid to live your life being someone else instead of facing your reality. #StratComDC @Savchuk_L
