A View from the Digital Trenches – Lessons from Year One of Hamilton 68

This article helps delineate the process used by Russian controlled web accounts (bots) to increase traffic and therefore internet "buzz" around Russian targeted agenda items. The Hamilton 68 dashboard itself shows the numbers of bot tweets/ Facebook posts etc. by tag.

People need to wake up.....and stop being so naive.

Wow, I was right, I knew it wasn't legitimate.... and thought right off that it was a scam.

@StarzAbove Wow, I was right, I knew it wasn't legitimate.... and thought right off that it was a scam.

That article doesn't say the fund the wall campaign is a scam, it simply points out that man behind it, who is who he says he is, a triple amputee veteran, has been accused of posting fake news in the past. His GoFundMe campaign for the wall is now over $13m.

Why are you talking to me, it's not my post, talk to Vic. If you think it's legitimate, go ahead and donate $1,000, and get that wall built. lol That's a lot of money that will probably go into his private bank account. Time will tell.
