About Vatnik Soup
“What is #vatniksoup?”
#vatniksoup is a Twitter thread series (and a hashtag!) where I’ll introduce pro-Russian actors and propagandists from around the world, be they so-called “independent journalists”, politicians, military personnel or just regular grifters looking to get some easy money.
The series also has introductions and deeper insights on how online propaganda and disinformation works and is spread. For example, I’ll talk about troll farms, social media manipulation and Russia’s online information operations.
I feel like it is important to introduce these bad actors along with the strategies they employ in the information space. Only this way we can pursue the one thing that’s usually referred to as the first victim of the war: truth.
