The ORIGINAL gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)
How Moscow’s robotic feeds and paid social-media commentators complicate open-source intelligence gathering.
The vulnerability of social media is well known. With "fake identity" web sites, which provide the visitor with a name and identifying information sufficient to open a social media account, even at the locations which bother to check, it is very easy for someone to open fraudulent accounts, and place their viewpoint where others will see it.I am certain that similar sites are used by those wishing to influence social media. For an agency to rely on social media, when trying to gauge public opinion, is a mistake. It appears that the agencies involved are not making a minimum of effort.Only twenty such accounts, when used once, could have an unfortunate effect on policy. It is certain that an untold amount are used by our nation's enemies.
