At Dems' Request, Twitter to 'Notify' 677,775 Users If They Ever Tweeted a 'Russian-Linked Account'

At the Democrats' request, Twitter is planning to "notify" 677,775 users if they ever "liked, retweeted or followed Russian-linked accounts," though they won't tell you any specifics so you can investigate yourself.

It's all part of the Democrats' effort to drum up Russophobic hysteria and try and convince the American public that a few allegedly "Russian-linked" bots influenced the election more than the billion dollars Hillary Clinton spent from mega-donors like George Soros and Haim Saban during the election and the millions spent by David Brock's Correct the Record, Shareblue and other shilling operations.

From The Hill:
Twitter said Friday that it has suspended 1,062 new accounts it has found to be linked to the Internet Research Agency, a Russian "troll farm" which disseminated content intended to interfere in the U.S. political process.

In total, the company has found 3,814 Internet Research Agency-linked accounts, which posted 175,993 tweets during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Twitter said it also found 13,512 new Kremlin-linked bot accounts, bringing the total number of bots it has found in connection to Russia's election influence efforts to 50,258.

The company also said in a post on Friday that it will notify 677,775 people to let them know that they either liked, retweeted or followed Russian-linked accounts, following a request from Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) to do so.

Twitter noted, however, that it won't show users the content they saw, saying that because it has "already suspended these accounts, the relevant content on Twitter is no longer publicly available."
Oh, you thought you'd be getting evidence? Sorry bud, you'll just have to trust us that there's a Russian hacker hiding behind every blade of grass.
