Twitter finds more Russian spooks with pro-Trump accounts
Twitter finds 200 Russian accounts dedicated to Trump
Twitter says it found some 200 accounts linked to the same Russian groups that bought $100,000 worth of ads on Facebook.
The adverts appear to be aimed at sowing political unrest and manipulate U.S. voters during the presidential election. The Twitter accounts, which were taken down over the last month, were linked to 470 accounts and pages that Facebook traced to the International Research Agency, a Russian troll farm.
According to a blog post released by Twitter Thursday after briefing staffers on the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, the groups on Facebook had 22 Twitter accounts.
