Twitter Fights Interference; Deletes 5,929 Saudi Accounts

December 20, 2019

 

"Twitter has identified and removed nearly 6,000 accounts that it said were part of a coordinated effort by Saudi government agencies and individuals to advance the country’s geopolitical interests.

 

Separately, Facebook said it removed hundreds of Facebook accounts, groups and pages linked to inauthentic behavior from two separate groups, one originating in the country of Georgia and one in Vietnam.

 

The latest crackdowns on state-backed social media campaigns came as tech companies step up efforts to tackle misinformation on their services ahead of next year’s U.S. presidential elections. The efforts followed revelations that Russians bankrolled thousands of fake political ads during the 2016 elections to sow dissent among Americans.

 

Twitter’s and Facebook’s announcements underscore the fact that misinformation concerns aren’t limited to the U.S. and Russia."

Facebook/Snopes vs. BL Network

December 20, 2019

 

"Yesterday, Facebook removed all pages and groups for the Epoch Times-linked empire known as “The BL,” which stands for “The Beauty of Life.” The BL had 55 million followers and hundreds of pro-Trump pages and groups. It was all largely run from Vietnam."

World USA ZAPPED!!!!

October 1, 2019

 

"A once pro-Trump Facebook page, World USA, built a following of nearly 1 million users between October 2016 and late September 2019 by sharing generically patriotic, Norman Rockwellian remembrances of a bygone America. Far from being a homegrown testament to American patriotism, however, the page — based on Facebook’s transparency tool — was actually run by two individuals in Ukraine.

 

In what may be illustrative of a broader digital influence strategy, the page appeared to be targeting older Americans. No doubt a minor player in the overall digital landscape, World USA could be representative of a larger problem facing Facebook — an inability to police the existence of clearly inauthentic pages that purport to represent the views of Americans but are actually run by people outside of the United States.

 

World USA is far from the only example of foreign users creating pages designed to look American. Facebook itself (or its algorithms) recommended several pages we should follow based on our interest in World USA, and they included myriad pro-America pages run by users in other countries. Facebook recommended we follow, for example, the President Of The United States Fan Club (run from Armenia), Melania Trump’s Fan (India-based), USA for President Trump 2020, and Stand With President Trump 2020 (both Vietnamese operations),  Barron Trump Fan (Pakistan), and We Love Donald Trump (Morocco).

 

Each of these pages, along with World USA, was taken down on Sept. 30, 2019, following our request for a comment from Facebook."

All very interesting.  OK, some foreign players have apparently been found that are helping the Republican party.  They have now been discovered and cast out, which they should be.

 

Now the question is:  Is there any foreign players that are on facebook that is helping the dems?  Are they being cast out too?  Let us know.

 

Isn't that interesting that the only thing said is how pro Trump foreigners are being cast out, but not a word of pro dems being uncovered.  Can you tell us anything about that?

So you only care that Republicans are getting help from foreign sources?

 

You are just fine with dems getting help from foreign sources?  I see how it works for you.   It's OK if foreign help comes to the rescue of the dems, but not to the evil Republicans. Wow are you wired differently than me.
