Dems Worry Russia Is STILL Meddling In Our Democracy Through Facebook

Facebook and Twitter have both disclosed political ad spending and accounts affiliated with Russian Federation, and Facebook is sharing its findings with Google, the source said.

Congressional officials have invited all three companies to public hearings in November to discuss the role of Russian Federation in the election.

On Thursday, Twitter's public policy account said it would "continue to strengthen Twitter against attempted manipulation, including malicious automated accounts and spam".

"It is important that tech companies collaborate on this because it's nearly certain that any actor trying to misuse Facebook will also be trying to abuse other internet platforms too", he said.

Facebook and Twitter were already found to have been exploited by Russia-linked propagandists to influence the election results.

Twitter declined to comment when asked about Warner's comments.

The comments signalled that the congressional investigations into Russia's use of social media platforms would not ease up.

A Twitter statement said the social media company shared data with congressional investigators about ads from RT, a television group with links to the Moscow government. In addition, he concurred with Warner's assessment that Twitter did not fully appreciate the significance of the information they presented. Twitter said it examined efforts by foreign agents to interfere with the election after Facebook indicated it found 450 accounts that appeared to have been used for this objective.

Thursday Twitter turned more than a round-up of advertisements from Russia-connected records focused to the USA showcase, the announcement said.

Twitter sold more than $270,000 of promotions to Russia-connected records amid the 2016 election, the organization said this week, additionally itemizing the degree of potential outside impact that is prodded Senate investigations and calls for more prominent direction.

Russian "news" sites target USA readers: The social media giant also revealed RT, a propaganda news site linked to the Kremlin, spent at least $274,100 in US -targeted Twitter ads.

To thwart abuse via applications interacting with Twitter, the company said it had suspended 117,000 apps since June that had been responsible for 1.5 billion "low-quality" tweets this year.
