Talk about burying the lede… Twitter trolls stoked debates about immigrants and pipelines in Canada, data show
The trolls appeared well-versed in Canadian debates about pipelines, quoting and retweeting prominent figures. The account of Greenpeace Canada climate and energy campaigner Mike Hudema, for instance, was the eighth-most retweeted by trolls. Hudema has been highly critical of Canadian pipeline projects and oilsands developments. The trolls retweeted him 53 times.
CBC News was the account that saw the most troll retweets.
The CBC is a foreign country. No doubt the CBC agenda was found to closely align with the interests of Iran, Venezuela & Russia.
