1/ For one example of just how badly @Facebook has prepared for this election year, TWO YEARS AGO I tweeted quite a lot about a "Sarah Huckabee Sanders Supporters" Facebook group that has fake account admins.

It's still there TWO YEARS LATER.

2/ I reported the group at the time, as well as the admins, but little or nothing was actually done.
3/ Only 2 admins remain, and both are fake:


Here they are archived by me a long time ago:

One moderator also remains.
4/ For two years now, membership has stayed at right about 20,000 members. It has basically stayed the same for two years.
5/ These 20,000+ people are in a closed group, locked behind a door, and are being influenced by foreign actors.
6/ Here's an example I found of fake account members and foreign influence in this group two years ago:
7/ Another from two years ago:
8/ Another from two years ago... notice this person has two completely different names:
9/ And this one too from two years ago, a Facebook account definitely not controlled by the woman shown in the photos:
10/ @MollyJongFast @oneunderscore__ @BrandyZadrozny @JuddLegum @GlennKesslerWP @selectedwisdom @slpng_giants, etc: Look ⬆️ if you need to cite an example of FB allowing 20k+ people's discussions to be locked in a closed group w/ foreign influence and no real admins for two years.
11/ Here's one of my threads from two years ago for reference.

Despite reports sent in by me about all of the foreign activity ahead of the 2018 election, Facebook did little or nothing.

And the group is still active for the 2020 election.
12/ Final point. If this thread achieves a few hundred retweets and likes, FB will probably take action.

I've seen @slpng_giants retweet me before about this sort of thing, and an hour later the violating content disappeared.

We shouldn't have to use Twitter to fix Facebook.

1/ NEW from me via @snopes: The Macedonian-run Facebook group Kayleigh McEnany OFFICIAL had 456,000+ members.

FB told us it "used compromised accounts to mislead people about its origin."

More uncovered pages appear in tweet 3 in this thread.

2/ Right now, 3 of the accounts that managed the group are still available on Facebook. One of them is named Elisabeth Kim, but features a profile photo of a woman with a name tag that says "Marti Jordan."

Kayleigh McEnany OFFICIAL was removed just weeks ahead of the election.
3/ Snopes also found these pages that were managed from Macedonia:

- Police and LEOs (192k likes): archive.vn/HTD2J#selectio…
- First Lady of the United States (2k likes): archive.vn/8edU2
- MAGA (30k members): archive.vn/ALgeB

The "First Lady" page is still active.

THREAD: Remember the #BuildTheWall @gofundme? I was cleaning out some old files on my laptop and found a January screenshot.

And now I have some questions. Not accusations. Just questions.

(See here for the entire page archived from January 11, 2019: web.archive.org/web/2019011119…) 1/
Question #1: Why has the number of donors dropped by tens of thousands over the last four months?

Compare archived link to today.

Then: "Raised by 337,247 people in 25 days" (web.archive.org/web/2019011119…)

Now: "Raised by 261,806 people in 4 months" (gofundme.com/TheTrumpWall) 2/
Question #2: Are they refunds? In “Update 23” on GoFundMe, Kolfage said: "The liberal media is LYING and saying all funds are being refunded!"

Of course not "all" funds have been refunded, but did tens of thousands of people really ask for refunds? 100,000 donors? More? 3/

1/ I've found multiple fake accounts posting in closed FB group "Sarah Huckabee Sanders Supporters": imgur.com/CQ9eeMo.jpg.

Some accounts have disappeared, but I made backups. They have influences from Pakistan, Russia, Lebanon, India, etc. #FacebookPropaganda @selectedwisdom
2/ Before we get started, remember that this is just ONE closed FB group. One small example of a gigantic problem.

Also this is not about all Facebook groups that support the press secretary. The group talked about here is #751453925058848. Just one group. #FacebookPropaganda
3/ Here are three examples of fake accounts and their postings that have disappeared recently.

The group is infested with & run by fake accounts. Read the next tweets for examples. #FacebookPropaganda
