Twitter Strikes

Twitter’s Trending Topics feature was been reorganized so it leads to less infusion of fake news stories.

Twitter also shut down 170,000 accounts linked to the Chinese government that created narratives favorable to their points of view on Hong Kong, Covid-19, etc. Commercial outfits, like Graphika, have also worked to disarm GRM (Russia’s intelligence agency). Russia’s election interference campaign, called Secondary Infektion, was tracked by Graphika. See
