Twitter Helped Pentagon Spread Disinformation Across The Globe

  • The eighth edition of “The Twitter Files” details the platform’s cooperation with the Pentagon to push disinformation in foreign countries.
  • The materials were published on Twitter to support the military’s geopolitical interests in the Middle East and beyond.
  • Twitter was fully aware of the Pentagon’s network of fake accounts – the company, in fact, helped expedite verification of the phone accounts – and it was slow to ban many of them.
