Immediately after the mass shooting at a Florida high school last week, hundreds of Twitter accounts turned their focus "almost on a dime" to amplify the events of the tragedy, Jonathan Morgan told CNBC on Tuesday.
According to The New York Times, those Twitter accounts are suspected of having links to Russia. Before the shooting that left 17 dead, many of those accounts had been focused on the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, the paper reported.
"It's hard to say exactly who's behind all of the content that we see but what we can say is that there [are] multiple networks of accounts, they're manipulating the conversation and they are playing both sides," he told "Closing Bell."

According to the New York Times...
everything can be linked to Russia.
Wouldn't surprise me in the least if the usual suspects have a bunch of kids on some basement paying them to do it.
But I don't think they're necessarily a problem.
I don't necessarily consider them a threat more than I consider our crumbling society one.
I don't know, but part of the pheomenon is the rapid decline in trust, respect for critical key institutions of Democracy.
Exactly. People are acting like this country isn't a collective of all our ideas. People think we can only have one or another. Often times it's the perspective of the other side that will help perfect an idea.... We're forgetting that.
