The Russian "Internet Research Agency" indicted by Special Council Robert Mueller for taking part in a "conspiracy to defraud the United States" was actually a commercial marketing scheme to generate advertising revenue, a new report from the investigative website Moon of Alabama suggests.
From Moon of Alabama on Saturday:
The U.S. election provided an excellent environment to build reputable online persona with large followings of people with discriminable mindsets. The political affinity was not important. The personalities only had to be very engaged and stick to their issue - be it left or right or whatever. The sole point was to gain as many followers as possible who could be segmented along social-political lines and marketed to the companies customers.Read the full report on Moon of Alabama.
It's an extremely solid theory. Russians, Chinese and Indians all run giant bot farms for the purpose of making money.
They sell followers for sites like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube and allow people to purchase "likes," retweets, viewers etc.
The Internet Research Agency likely had all the hallmarks of an internet marketing agency because it was an internet marketing agency.
