It what may be an early onslaught of Kremlin-linked Twitter attacks ahead of the U.S. midterm elections, Russia bots appear to be fueling a wave of criticism targeting Democrats over alleged intimidation in political confrontations and a lack of “civility,” according to bot trackers.

Attacks with the hashtag #WalkAway purport to be from a “grassroots” wave of one-time Democrats who have left the party in part because they say they are so incensed by the hateful and divisive behavior of party members. The message is to “walk away” from ugly confrontations, “intolerance” and hate — and from the Democratic Party.

But the hashtag has been connected to Russian bots. It has ranked as the third or fourth most popular Kremlin-linked hashtag for days, according to bot tracking by the Hamilton 68 site run by the bipartisan Alliance for Securing Democracy, which keeps tabs on Russian activity on the American internet.

Arc Digital has made the same connection in the “strikingly similar” tweets pushing a “familiar narrative” of Democratic “bullying.” Arc traced the campaign from a Facebook group in May and subsequent tweets whose traffic suddenly began to explode late last month.

Amplification of tweets by bots does not necessarily mean content is created by Kremlin-linked operators. But bots typically grossly exaggerate Twitter traffic — and influence — by replicating chosen messages tens of thousands of times.

The aim of such a campaign is to manipulate public opinion by “gaming online algorithms” to rocket content to the top of internet searches, noted Arc Digital.

Fox News and other conservative outlets in turn have helped amplify the message by reporting on the #WalkAway “movement.”

Yes, I heard about this. Just goes to show McLame’s true loyalties. Hopefully, Trump won’t go to his funeral very, very soon.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek

I am not a  #WalkAway supporter.  Are you?  The Russians are feeding the birthers, swiftboaters and lock her up crowd.  Those are the only people that fall for this crap.

Putin got more out of installing Trump in the Whitehouse than if he'd have spent billions on Russian military...   

We (the U.S.) got our ass beat in CWI (Cyber War I) and our own idiot Right celebrates it.

No, no, no.  That is not who it is affecting.  Those folks are already firmly against the democrats.  To the extent that there is any success in this hashtag campaign, the people who it is affecting, and who you are really attacking, are your fellow democrat supporters who are "Walk[ing]Away".
