They are tracking 600 known accounts that repost or directly post Russian bot propaganda. Its not that these are the ONLY 600 accounts doing this.
So? The theory that tweets and retweets had anything to do with the election is absurd.

#ReleaseTheMemo is the top-trending hashtag among Twitter accounts linked to Russian influence operations, according to Hamilton 68, a website launched last year that says it tracks Russian propaganda in near-real time.
A document described by House Republicans as a top-secret memo about surveillance “abuse” contains talking points focused on discrediting Fusion GPS, the firm that hired a British ex-spy to compile intelligence reports about alleged connections between President Trump’s associates and the Kremlin, according to people who have read it.
It suggests the former spy, Christopher Steele, lied to FBI agents who interviewed him during their probe of the 2016 election and that this purported lie was included in a successful application for a federal court order to conduct electronic surveillance on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, said these individuals, who spoke on the condition of anonymity citing the material’s sensitivity.

I just want to point out the usual lefty posters and ardent never trumpers have been quite absent the threads about this all day and last night...until this cooked up Russian bot B.S. started up...now that's all they can muster in threads related to this...that and gossip tabloid trump bash threads. Wonder what that's all about.
