Byron York shared this thread on Russian trolls from Chris Bail, a professor at Duke and the director of the The Polarization Lab, which brings together machine learning and social science to reduce political polarization on social media.

Fair.

Actually pretty amazing stuff here, folks, and definitely worth your time.
