Twitter, Telegram Urged To Be Wary Of Spanish-Language Russian Disinfo

  • Senators called on Meta, Twitter and Telegram to address and moderate Russian disinformation campaigns on their platforms that target Spanish-speaking audiences in letters sent to their leaders on Wednesday.
  • Letter: “[D]isinformation campaigns by Russian state media’s Spanish-language outlets targeted at Latin American and Caribbean audiences regularly reach Spanish-speaking communities in the United States, directly harming our national interests. We are deeply concerned by reports that the operations and reach of such outlets have only increased amid Putin’s actions in Ukraine.”
