Exclusive: Even Pokémon Go used by extensive Russian-linked meddling effort

Exclusive: Even Pokémon Go used by extensive Russian-linked meddling effort


Russian efforts to meddle in American politics did not end at Facebook and Twitter. A CNN investigation of a Russian-linked account shows its tentacles extended to YouTube, Tumblr and even Pokémon Go.

One Russian-linked campaign posing as part of the Black Lives Matter movement used Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr and Pokémon Go and even contacted some reporters in an effort to exploit racial tensions and sow discord among Americans, CNN has learned.
The campaign, titled "Don't Shoot Us," offers new insights into how Russian agents created a broad online ecosystem where divisive political messages were reinforced across multiple platforms, amplifying a campaign that appears to have been run from one source -- the shadowy, Kremlin-linked troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency.

A source familiar with the matter confirmed to CNN that the Don't Shoot Us Facebook page was one of the 470 accounts taken down after the company determined they were linked to the IRA. CNN has separately established the links between the Facebook page and the other Don't Shoot Us accounts.
The Don't Shoot Us campaign -- the title of which may have referenced the "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" slogan that became popular in the wake of the shooting of Michael Brown -- used these platforms to highlight incidents of alleged police brutality, with what may have been the dual goal of galvanizing African Americans to protest and encouraging other Americans to view black activism as a rising threat.

Nearly-69-year-old grandmother and possible future president Hillary Clinton wants you to know she has a finger on the pulse of what's hip with the youths these days. "I don't know who created Pokemon Go," she said at a recent appearance, her eyes lighting up with a crack-hit of instant resonance and applause, "but I'm trying to figure out how we get them to have 'Pokemon Go to the polls.'" Pokemon is getting even more play than it did last election.

Just as with someone claiming "bang for a buck" with Facebook or Twitter buys.
