Russian Tweets on Brexit
14 November 2017
About this video
A detailed analysis of Twitter accounts identified by the US senate as being linked to the Kremlin shows this activity before, during and after the Brexit vote in 2016.
However, although co-ordinated, Russian activity appears to be at a much lower level than in the US presidential elections.
The analysis was carried out by Yin Yin Lu, a researcher at the Oxford Internet Institute.
