“This network began creating accounts in April 2020. The individuals behind this activity took steps to conceal their coordination and who is behind this network,” Nathaniel Gleicher, Head of Security Policy at Facebook, said late on Tuesday.
The people behind this activity posted in Spanish and English about news and current events in the US including memes and other content about humor, race relations and racial injustice, feminism and gender relations, environmental issues and religion.
“A small portion of this content included memes posted by the Russian Internet Research Agency (IRA) in the past. They reused content shared across internet services by others, including screenshots of social media posts by public figures,” Gleicher informed.
