Ruth Michaelson & Michael Safi, Guardian #Disinformation: the online threat to protest in the Middle East

"Citizenlab established how some individuals on social media could have a large influence on the online conversation about protests in Iraq, Lebanon or Iran despite being located elsewhere. One example was Amjad Taha, a British-Arab commentator living in London and a fierce critic of the Iranian regime. Observers say his tweets often reflect the perspective of Saudi Arabia’s government."
