2018 | Knight Foundation
Who’s behind the spread of “Fake News?” On the eve of the 2018 U.S. midterm election, the non-profit research group Knight Foundation analyzed Twitter data to investigate how disinformation spread during the 2016 presidential race. Their study—which included more than 10 million tweets from 700,000 Twitter accounts—found sobering statistics. With social media only continuing to grow in influence and specious activity showing no signs of slowing, Knight Foundation’s findings were urgent. They hired Accurat to help bring them to life for voters.
