British MPs ask Twitter for details on Russian-linked accounts

04 Novembre 2017

The digital giants have testified this week as part of a USA congressional probe into Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election.

Committee Chairman Damian Collins wrote to Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey asking for information on any posting about United Kingdom politics by Russian accounts.

In a letter addressed to Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey, Collins referred to the social platform's claim that it had found 2,752 accounts relating to the St Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency.

"It has subsequently emerged that some of these accounts were also posting content that relates to the politics of the United Kingdom".

It follows a similar call for information from chairman Damian Collins MP for data on advertising and pages paid-for by Russian-liked Facebook accounts around the Brexit and general election votes.

Modster figures to be UCLA's starting quarterback next season unless 4-star QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson has an awesome camp. In a season where the Bruins have again struggled on the field, losing Rosen nearly guarantees the season could be lost.

Collins gave Twitter until the end of November to meet his request.

On November 1, Britain's Electoral Commission said it was investigating whether Russian Federation may have meddled in the Brexit vote by helping to finance an anti-European Union campaigner.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and at least two congressional committees are investigating Russia's actions during the campaign.

Over 3,000 global news outlets inadvertently published articles containing embedded tweets by the confirmed Kremlin-linked troll accounts in over 11,000 news articles in the run-up to the 2016 election, NBC News' reporting shows.
