Russians were convicted of intimidation of Americans inoculations


The American researchers from the George Washington University have accused the Russian trolls of distribution of misinformation to Twitter concerning vaccination. Material is published in the American Journal of Public Health magazine. Experts have found several accounts which, according to them, interfered with presidential elections of the USA in 2016 and also wrote various posts about vaccination. Experts have noted that troll "played in both parties", leaving messages about advantage and about harm of inoculations at the same time. Such tactics allowed to kindle the conflicts and to insinuate society, scientists are sure. "These trolls, it seems, use a vaccination problem as a wedge that promotes dissonance in the American society. Playing in both parties, they undermine confidence of the public to vaccination, putting at all of us at risk of infection with infections" — the member of the team of researchers Mark Dredze has said. He has also added that viruses don't respect national borders. Scientists investigated casual selection from 1,7 million ​​ the tweets collected during the period from July, 2014 to September of the 2017th. According to researchers, trolls wrote about vaccination by 22 times more often than ordinary users. The majority of these records under a hashtag #VaccinateUS was left by the Russian "factory of trolls", experts are sure. The The Guardian edition notes that the research is connected with the fact that Europe has faced one of the largest outbreaks of measles within several decades that partially is explained by refusal of many people of vaccination. For the first six months 2018 on the continent have counted 41 thousand cases of infection with measles — more, than for all last year.
