A series on Misinformation, Disinformation and Subterfuge
The competitive world of Professional Twitter Trolling can be rather cutthroat business at times. In the below case, a San Francisco School Board recall operation, things got very testy when trolls exposed other trolls that weren’t currently contracted to be on the same team.
Real engagement with bots and bad actors paid to harass and intimidate, each vying over informational control of the battleground, is truly disrupting democracy. I have noted the trolls complaints. Not enough real people to fight with, one reason Truth Social is a failure. But to normal people, like school moms, having outsiders come in, join with a few bad local eggs, and ruin debate, those types of weaponized PsyOps need to be stopped just as badly as those disturbing Social Media.
Here is Mensch’s take on things.
Having gone through countless threads of various antagonists, they sure do delete a lot of what they do. It’s part of the work, and a way to circumvent getting got by Twitter hurting people. You can find hundreds, if not thousands of broken threads with a typical DARVO queen troll account like KassandraSeven, that leave full pages of statements of posts deleted by user. In a prosecution, that would constitute Obstruction of Justice. In the world of criminal harassment, that is just how they do it.
Another tactic, that of parking/benching sock accounts, as given here by master of sock drawers, Matt Donovan, who for no particular reason has socks mgcwndw locked with aMagicWindow, SockSentinel, StewageSystem currently parked offline until needed and likely later restored to hurt more people.
A match to one’s socks, is not a dox. It is simply giving credit for what one has done to harass, bully, threaten people.
In a previous story I showed Mensch call out Donovan. Here is a different look to that same thread where Matt’s aMagicWindow, mddnvn and bureikuanon were labeled properly as Matt’s socks. DearMrPutin, which is Mensch, is also properly attributed.
If you were wondering what Louise meant about repurposing harassment accounts, Matt’s aMagicWindow started off as a victimized girl persona, Paige Victoria, one of those weaponized misogyny accounts similar to multiple of Susan’s KassandraSeven harassment operation bad actors. Are they fat old men living in their mom’s basements pretending to be young desirable women, or are they just added socks like Susie’s fairly easy to spot and label, Su—s-an Vagabundo?
Back to Donovan, and away from Sue’s own LARP at gender bending.
Matt’s early amagicwindow Lady account, so as to not appear inauthentic and bot-like, also engages in self talk among his socks just like KassandraSeven does.
Trolls teach trolls.
I did cut out the other parts of the conversation, not nearly as disturbing as what is below, which can be found along with nine other log records of Matt’s sock puppet work one of his competitors no doubt likely dropped on the net after his cross country work in San Fran.
Troll Warfare continues.
RealMarinaTimes is also a Matt sock. He has drawers FULL of them.
Louise, who knows a thing or two about tagging to generate troll swarm attacks to psychologically destroy people, calls out the bugle horn call to attack tactic. This is the same tactic, and many of the same players, used to assault Jim Stewartson, Rebekah Jones, myself and countless others.
Call in the professionals like Chad Loder. Hurt people. Move on.
Bad actors attacking from masked accounts deserve to be outed. Best if the operatives themselves do so. Some wind up losing their accounts, but not the big and most dangerous ones. Mensch got a couple of days, once, that I am aware of, for her dropping personal identification of someone who pissed her off. She was part of a network that appeared to be responsible for a man taking his own life, literally trolled to death. At least she didn’t hide, unlike the rest that just locked down, switched over and abandoned accounts after that horrific success.
Twitter lacks a strong authentication system. They don’t deal well with taking down bots, or single purpose multi-account hate networks, instead likely giving at least one, the ability to hit a switch, inauthentically ban a target, and to then lie about what that person did, or didn’t do, knowing they were the ones that broke the rules.
With no control over sock accounts, and the ability for trolls to buy used or slightly used socks to maim and harm, Twitter is a battlefield, with less and less people navigating it safely.
Yes, a battlefield of socks, bots and trolls, all acting inauthentically, is rather boring. And dangerous.
Twitter needs to clean up its platform.
