NBC News today made available a database of more than 200,000 tweets from the (allegedly) state-sponsored Russian troll farm known as the Internet Research Association (IRA). A sample from the database, available here as a Google spreadsheet, shows more than 11k tweets from just 10 of the troll accounts. Sara Silverman and Trevor Noah both retweeted Russian propaganda account tweets. With US mid-term elections coming up, it’s important to know what Russian propaganda looks like because if the US government sits idly by, it’s not going anywhere. Twitter deleted 200,000 Russian troll tweets.
