Twitter publishes Russian Troll Accounts

TwitterSince 2016 the US elections were embroiled with Twitter, the popular platform has become very diligent in identifying any troll accounts. Now, the company publishes troll tweets in order for people to better understand the situation.

The social media, published data that includes 10 million tweets, which present text, images, GIF and video from Russia and the accounts linked to Iran.

The data set consists of 3.841 accounts from the Russian Internet Research Agency and 770 accounts probably from Iran. It also includes 2 million GIFs, videos and recorded Periscope live streams. Some data are dated by 2009.

Twitter he explains the reason behind the publication of these tweets: "We make this data available to encourage open research and exploration of these behaviors by researchers and academics around the world," he said.

This action is part of Twitter's great initiative to do such public activities so people can track troll accounts. In a blog post on 2016, Twitter announced that it is opening its research to the public (researchers, academics and journalists) that can help the social network analyze tweets.

Publishing hostile tweets seems an effective approach to limiting troll accounts. It is obvious that the Twitter team alone can not clean up all accounts and tweets, considering that many tweets are lost when users do not report them.
