Information Regarding Russian Influence Campaigns on Twitter

Got this in the e-mailski today. Just an FYI-PSA, make of it what you will:

Dear ______b,
As part of our recent work to understand Russian-linked activities on Twitter during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, we identified and suspended a number of accounts that were potentially connected to a propaganda effort by a Russian government-linked organization known as the Internet Research Agency.
Consistent with our commitment to transparency, we are emailing you because we have reason to believe that you either followed one of these accounts or retweeted or liked content from these accounts during the election period. This is purely for your own information purposes, and is not related to a security concern for your account.
We are sharing this information so that you can learn more about these accounts and the nature of the Russian propaganda effort. You can see examples of content from these suspended accounts on our blog if you're interested.
People look to Twitter for useful, timely, and appropriate information. We are taking active steps to stop malicious accounts and Tweets from spreading, and we are determined to keep ahead of the tactics of bad actors. For example, in recent months we have developed new techniques to identify accounts manipulating our platform, have improved our process for challenging suspicious accounts, and have introduced new measures designed to identify and take action on coordinated malicious activity. In 2018, we are building on these improvements. Our blog also contains more information about these efforts.
People come to Twitter to see what's happening in the world. We are committed to making it the best place to do that and to being transparent with the people who use and trust our platform.

[One must wonder if anyone knows WTH is going on, or went on: ...]

    Keeping it Mum

    Source: - The Mummy

    Not sure the CinĂ© quality of this attempted rebirth of monsters-galore; it was a big deal years ago.  But definitely is a sight for sore eyes and faded memory to revisit these suckers---if you recall:::?

    A vintage model of the original Universal monster movies-era...

    Aurora Model Kits

    Et al. of Tangential relation...
    It's still likely a project of some conjecture to ponder what was the more affecting to the minds of youngsters and their model depictions of the entertainment fare from those days. If one hasn't the control on what the still-forming minds are watching, hearing, temperance in other areas possible, or is the horse too far gone from the barn at that point?

    More to the point, is the horse huffing?? After all, the toxic chemical fumes from the condiments of model making, inhaled either willfully or accidentally, alone, likely accounts for more brain cell damage and then-&-now behavioral problems than could ever be accurately evidenced. I mean, that on top of the government spraying kids from roving trucks of DDT, or tykes playing with the foot X-ray machine in the shoe store------well, it wasn't Gamma Rays....but then it didn't have to be!

    We may never know, but sperm count in N. America, Europe and other countries of these similar 'Western' cultures has dropped by half; so if you were planning to pass on your glue n' paint-addled genes you might not even get the chance. And this new-old Dark Universe may be our only lasting legacy...
