You know it seems that no matter how hyperbolic the “Russian bots” narrative has gotten, it still keeps on persisting. Though what really has me concerned is more that the grounds at which Twitter is identifying “Russian bot accounts” is apparently incredibly loose.
FYI, the group that the media is citing for the "Russian bots are pushing #ReleaseTheMemo claim" is called Hamilton 68. The criteria they use to classify an account as "Russian linked" is EXTREMELY loose and even with that they are still only tracking 600 accounts. See below: pic.twitter.com/oto8SSAFV1

I kind of understand why some people think that there are Russian trolls spamming particular hashtags, just forgive me for being a little skeptical of Twitter
