[liberationtech] Russians are silencing Yemenis the troll houses

Russians are silencing Yemenis with Troll houses, this makes Twitter an
accessory to genocide if they continue allowing Russian totalitarian
genocide propaganda and defamation.

All western news channels are blocked in Russia, people are jailed for
liking the wrong post. They think the west are idiots and take advantage of
twitter to suppress dissent via troll houses. If Twitter doesn't block
countries that abuse the service and spam to silence dissidents, they are
an accessory to the genocide propaganda. Remember in Yemen Houthis kill
those who oppose them.

The Russian propaganda troll houses, of 400 people tweeting are the biggest
threat to democracy we have. People in a warzone are tired, who barely
speak English are silenced by this. Twitter is not useful and irrelevant
anymore.

Twitter should be liberation technology, but is being subverted as genocide
propaganda technology, as Russia Today is verified rather than blocked.
Russians think westeners are idiots for not being totalitarian like them
and exploit our technology. I believe in free speech until someone abuses
it, starts killing dissidents and throws money into troll factories, bribes
to NGOs and journalists to further suppress dissent.

Here is an article on a different troll house of 400 people Putin has
hired. Russian spammers have to be blocked from social media until those
crooks learn to play with us they have to play fair.

And many of the twitter trolls on the #Yemen tag do speak Russian. I do as
well.

What can be done to combat twitter spamming as a form to suppress dissent
by totalitarian regimes?

All the best,
Maria
