Russian Troll Tweets Exploration
What is this?
The good people at FiveThirtyEight were kind enough to release the tweets and handles of Russian Trolls in the lead-up and following the 2016 election. These data were assembled by Clemson University researchers Darren Linvill, & Patrick Warren. I'll let FiveThirtyEight explain more, here. I'm just exploring the data they released here.
