USA right wing Twitter star unmasked as creation of Russian Government

USA right wing Twitter star unmasked as creation of Russian Government”

According to the Daily Beast, the agency developed a following around the Abrams account by offering humorous, seemingly non-political takes on pop culture figures like Kim Kardashian. Her persona was crafted to reflect that of a xenophobic, straight-talking, white woman.

Abrams' tweets were published everywhere from InfoWars to USA Today and Sputnik to The Washington Post, and high-profile users like Roseanne Barr, Michael McFaul and even, once, Starbucks' corporate account responded to her on Twitter.

"To those people, who hate the Confederate flag".

Flynn wasn't alone: Donald Trump Jr., Kellyanne Conway and Brad Parscale, Trump's campaign digital director, all retweeted fake Russian Twitter accounts in the month before the election.

Abrams was reportedly designed not to be openly political about Russian Federation, or even the elections. This could have possibly been one of the reasons why it was not readily apparent that she was a foreign troll.

Unlike the Abrams account, which went out of its way to say wasn't pro-Trump, almost all of Moore's tweets leading up to the election appear to have crafted to support Trump's campaign.

Public influencers like actress Roseanne Barr, former United States ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, Historian Kevin Kruse and several others were known to have been involved in direct arguments with Abrams on Twitter.

Twitter and Google have suspended accounts associated with Abrams. She had a gmail account, a GoFundMe page, an active blog, and even a Medium page.

The months leading up to the United States elections saw Abrams get a lot more political.

The revelation that Abrams was in fact not areal shows the extent of some Russian manipulation of elections - as the troll went to significant lengths to appear to be a real person on the platform. "100 percent free people made their choice, and their choice is segregation".

In September 2016, she wrote a now-deleted Medium post arguing for a return to segregation in the US.

Twitter troll Jenna Abrams, who had amassed more than 70,000 followers, was exposed following an investigation into Russian interference in last year's presidential election by the United States senate Intelligence Committee.
