Startups at the American elections. Twitter has provided new data on "intervention"


Operators of the Russian boats used, in particular, IFTTT startup tools from San Francisco, Bloomberg with reference to data of Twitter of the Photo claims: depositphotos.com Russia interfered with elections in the USA by means of the American startups, Bloomberg claims. The speech, in particular, about the project based in San Francisco and which has made possible simultaneous distribution of identical messages in several social networks. Through this startup hundreds of accounts connected with Russia allegedly worked. Russia used private American projects to interfere with electoral process in the USA, Bloomberg claims. In particular, the agency mentions IFTTT Inc startup. it is from San Francisco. The functionality of his software allowed to distribute at the same time identical messages in several social networks at once. The management managed to learn about this scheme Twitter. The facts belong to 2017 and also to the first half of this year. Possibly, the people using these programs tried to hide a source of the distributed messages, Bloomberg emphasizes. The information security expert and technologies Maxim Emm doesn't understand an essence of claims to startapu:maksy Emm is information security expert and technologies "So far as concerns IFTTT startup, in fact, it is the cloudy system of avtomatization of actions of the user. To accuse them of complicity or to say that some mechanisms will be built-in to do mass publications — equally well it is possible to declare Microsoft that it has created an operating system by means of which malefactors can do something, or Apple for the fact that she releases phones by means of which it is possible to publish in network too. It already, of course, is more similar to paranoia, than to some real investigations or identifications of the reasons". On October 19 the Ministry of Justice of the USA has accused Russian Elena Husyaynova of the organization and financing of conspiracy with the purpose of intervention in elections of 2016. Later Donald Trump has said that she has no relation to his election campaign. There will take place congressional elections soon, and the next fact of intervention can become an important argument for one of the parties, the chief researcher of Institute of the USA and Canada of RAS Vladimir Vasilyev:vladimir Vasilyev the chief researcher of Institute of the USA and Canada believes RAS "The American campaign has already entered actually a closing stage, elections in two weeks. Heat of political struggle very much and very intense. A gap very small — 50 on 50. I don't exclude the fact that under certain conditions there can be a vote recount situation. And then the pretext that someone interfered, will hang somewhere. The American political strategists obviously study today this situation". On this background the Russian Foreign Ministry has accused U.S. authorities of attempts to frighten world community of "the Russian hackers and bloggers" who allegedly try to interfere with the American elections. In Moscow understand that Washington thus fabricates a pretext for imposition of new sanctions, have declared in the MFA. Earlier Donald Trump skim milk
