    Starting to suspect that some of you guys might be Russian bots. Or at least unwitting accomplices to such bots.

    "Chris Inglis, the former No. 2 at the National Security Agency, says the U.S. has not pursued this capability. “The Russians are 10 years ahead of us in being willing to make use of” social media to influence public opinion, he says."

    Oh brother. It's also their fault blacks are protesting. Give me a break! They are just trying to keep lawsuits, and government taking any license away from them which they probably deserve, from flying against social media sites like Facebook, Twitter etc.

    On top of these "findings" it's the young Hillary/Dem and black voters that would have been influenced to vote for her if true.

    Russian hackers 'used Pokemon Go as part of attempts to meddle in US election'





    Russian cyber experts created a Pokemon Go game as part of their attempts to meddle with the US election, according to an investigation by CNN.
    Under the banner of Don’t Shoot Us, a collective that seemed to share the aims of Black Lives Matter but which is now believed to be run by Russians, the game was created to inspire online participants.
    Users could visit sites where police brutality had been recorded, and were encouraged to give their Pokemon characters names of real-life victims, such as Eric Garner, who died on Staten Island.
    The winner of the Pokemon contest would receive an Amazon gift card, the Don’t Shoot Us site said.
    CNN said it had no evidence of anyone actually claiming the prize.
    "It's clear from the images shared with us by CNN that our game assets were appropriated and misused in promotions by third parties without our permission," Niantic, the makers of Pokémon Go, said in a statement provided to CNN.
    "It is important to note that Pokémon Go, as a platform, was not and cannot be used to share information between users in the app so our platform was in no way being used. This 'contest' required people to take screen shots from their phone and share over other social networks, not within our game. Niantic will consider our response as we learn more."
    The Don’t Shoot Us site also had a YouTube and Tumblr account, and people claiming to be spokespeople for the collective even contacted some reporters in an effort to exploit racial tensions and sow discord among Americans, CNN said.


    The sites may have had “the dual goal of galvanising African Americans to protest and encouraging other Americans to view black activism as a rising threat,” the network claimed.
    A source confirmed to CNN that the Don't Shoot Us Facebook page was one of the 470 accounts taken down after the company determined they were linked to the Internet Research Agency – a Kremlin-linked “troll farm”.
    The Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts belonging to the campaign are currently suspended.
    The group's YouTube channel and website were both still active as of Thursday morning.
    The Tumblr page now posts about Palestine.

    The Don't Shoot Us YouTube page contains more than 200 videos of news reports, police surveillance tape and amateur footage showing incidents of alleged police brutality. These videos, which were posted between May and December of 2016, have been viewed more than 368,000 times.
