StratCom: Russian bots and trolls flooded social networks

56
The US Embassy in Riga on Twitter publishes a “warning” about why the Russian language should not be used for correspondence in the Global Network, including groups in social networks. The US diplomatic mission, referring to the report of the operational working group on strategic communications in Europe, StratCom, reports that allegedly 60% of messages in Russian on Twitter are generated by robots.


At the same time, it is stated that English-language bots are active "only" on 39%.

StratCom: Russian bots and trolls flooded social networks


In fact, we are talking about an attempt to present not only Russia, but even the Russian language itself, as something dangerous, like something that must be absolutely abandoned, since it "carries a threat." The same agency declares massive "attacks by pro-Russian trolls."

Recall that earlier a study was conducted in which values ​​are given to reduce the number of Russian speakers in the world. Over the past two decades, the number of Russian-speaking people around the world has decreased by about 50 million people! Now pro-NATO structures in Europe are trying to declare that Russians are using social networks with messages on 60% of network robots in order to "catch the gullible Europeans". In the end, everything will again be reduced to the idea of ​​the need to additionally throw off the opposition to the "Russian threat."

            A study was carried out in which values ​​are given to reduce the number of Russian speakers in the world. Over the past two-plus decades, the number of Russian-speaking people around the world has decreased by about 50 million people.

            Think two more World Wars have passed.
            A real war is going on against Russia. And it is necessary to respond to attacks according to the laws of wartime.

        the fictional "ordinary Americans" lived. And not on modern slang at all.
        Apparently, in Moscow there are not enough young American FSB agents,
        that would fill the "accounts" with fakes. They took the "old people", and they "failed the case."

Trump has the slogan Make America Great Again, abbreviated MAGA. I wrote the following: MAGA is a short version of muslim name Mohammed, but stupid Americans don't know about it. The magician is the shortened Muslim name Magomed, but stupid Americans do not know about it. laughing laughing

    The casket just opened.
    Such activity was not initiated by state bodies and services of Russia.
    Consequently, there was no really serious funding and organization for such an event.
    And in the modern world, without serious funding, no serious project can be successfully implemented.
    Similar activities could be carried out by any spontaneous groups of pseudo-patriots and hackers.
    And the household cleaning of such an activity is absolutely logical.
    Similar activities could be organized provocation by the same Western intelligence agencies and the “non-modern” trolling slang could be explained by an unsuccessful attempt to cover up and address this activity to Russian entities.

    And what about the old men who you allegedly allegedly "failed the case."
    If the goal was set, it would be achieved.
