    Major Bernie Sanders? backers suspect Russians flooded their social sites with anti-Hillary memes

    This will be news to precisely no one who followed the primary closely on Twitter.

    Happened lots in Glenn Beck centric Facebook groups too. Notable perhaps because Beck was so anti-Trump but his supporters largely saw him as the lesser of two evils.

    I received a newsletter/mass-email thing from Glenn Beck literally seconds after typing that. Creepy.

    They're honestly really easy to spot. Weird sentence structures that tend to follow a template, really generic profiles that don't really strike you as belonging to an individual human being, claiming to be a Democrat despite not holding any views which would make one think they'd voted Democrat at any point since 1964, completely batshit insane conspiracy theories (the "HRC's emails were deleted because they revealed that she murdered Amb. Stevens in Benghazi because he stumbled upon her devious plot to invade Syria to build an oil pipeline" my personal favourite. Unsurprisingly, this made it to Jill Stein's twitter account). But mostly people start noticing that they were botnets and would mass-tweet exactly the same thing at exactly the same time.

    Yeah Beck actually ended up hiring someone full time just to spend each day banning them. Not hard to spot at all, but the scale of it made it hard to deal with anyway.

    Yeah been discussed a lot this for a few months, pretty sure the Mensch did some number crushing and plenty of prominent internet peeps e,g Cernevich and Prison Loon have also benefited from this sort of thing.

    Out of curiosity, you seen much of this sort of thing for Le Pen yet? I know there there was gay rumours floating about with Macron, but I think like the Will Smith rumours, they have been around a long long time.

    From what I've read and seen, they're definitely trying, but for whatever reason it isn't having that much effect (mostly because they seem to be way outnumbering actual supporters on twitter and becoming so obvious it's self-discrediting). But that's just what I've been told, my French is nowhere near good enough to stumble across French-language botnets run out of St Petersburg.

    Fixed.

    Next can we get an article on the hordes of Australian trolls and how their meme warfare won the west for Donald.
