How was social media used to influence the 2016 election?
The number one Russian goal was to create DIVISION. They did this by promoting competing candidates from different parties simultaneouslly through ads on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, and more. They promoted 2 candidates to detract from Hilary Clinton voters, Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein. They have used YouTube to spread conspiracy theories and disinformation, what the Russians call Deza. Propaganda promotes a candidate, like “America First” while committing treason and purposefully ruining the country and lives of common people.
