The flow of russian disinformation, and how russian cyber warfare works:

GRU hacks, russian media writes about it, russian bots take to twitter.

The bots I am looking at tweeted about "Cyber Berkut".

ncsc.gov.uk/news/reckless-…
GCHQ attributes Cyber Berkut to GRU.

In just what happened to be an odd coincidence I happened to be looking at russian bots when @rob_barry did a thread about "CyberCaliphate"
At some point in march 2014 after the russian invasion of crimea GRU setup Cyber Berkut and started attacking various Ukrainian infrastructure and websites.

There is definitely something going on.
If you look around twitter there are some very "odd" accounts.

These tweets seem weird to me.
One uses a #QAnon hashtag.

Quick thread about a small set of bots I ran into this morning. Every once in a while I randomly check the @SecureDemocracy dashboard it's usually the same things. Today #WeAreCorbyn popped up. Figured I would check it out. #Botspot #Russia #KremlinTrolls
Tweeting this kinda as I go.
1st thing pull data on the hashtag.
visual studio code, python, and tweepy.
I only pulled about 40k tweets, not that many.
next step is to crack open that .csv file and remove all the duplicate accounts leaving only one row per account.
Then start sorting. IF there is a pattern you will notice it almost immediately.

Here 16 accounts show up with the same stats, sorted by tweet source. Bots.
