How is this tool working to address disinformation?

This tool fights disinformation by identifying and archiving the accounts and tweets/posts associated with known disinformation campaigns propagated through Twitter and Reddit since 2018. The archive stores these datasets both for use by researchers who wish to understand and develop counter-responses to adversary disinformation and for exploration by the general public. Knowledge of specific disinformation campaigns and about the practices of actors spreading disinformation may make users more resilient to future information operations.
