How a Russian troll sowed conflict using fake photos and news coverage

Russian troll identified

It looked like a Twitter account of the Tennessee GOP, but it was actually a prime example of how the Russia troll farm operated – garnering hundreds of shares and widespread media coverage for messaging that wasn’t just false, but came from a fabricated account.

And it happened not during the presidential campaign, but this past August.

TEN_GOP boasted 145,000 followers when it posted two tweets of photos falsely representing the size of the crowd at a rally for President Donald Trump. When it was called out on the false photos – after they had already been shared hundreds of times – the person running the account deleted the posts and offered an apology while mocking “loser liberals.”
