Going to try to go through all the interesting stuff i found while looking into the 2700 #RussianTroll accounts democrats-intelligence.house.gov/news/documents…
On 26 Nov 2015 21+ of the accounts tried to trend these hashtags: #KochFarms #FSIS #NY #FoodPoisoning #USDA
on 6 Feb 2016 30+ of the accounts tweeted during the ABC news primary debates washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/w…
the hashtags they used where #ABCGOPDebate #ABCNews #GOPDebate #StopTheGOP
