Revealed: US spy operation that manipulates social media | Technology | The Guardian

The US military is developing software that will let it secretly manipulate social media using fake online personas designed to influence internet conversations and spread pro-American propaganda.

A Californian corporation has been awarded a contract with the US Central Command (Centcom) to develop what is described as an "online persona management service" that will allow one serviceman or woman to control up to 10 separate identities at once.

Centcom's contract requires the provision of one "virtual private server" in the United States and eight appearing to be outside the US to give the impression the fake personas are real people located in different parts of the world. It calls for "traffic mixing", blending the persona controllers' internet usage with the usage of people outside Centcom in a manner that must offer "excellent cover and powerful deniability".

Once developed the software could allow US service personnel, working around the clock in one location, to respond to emerging online conversations with a host of co-ordinated blogposts, tweets, retweets, chatroom posts and other interventions.

Have they been using Arrse as a training aid - anyone going to own up?

There are enough people on ARRSE with split personalities to populate the CENTCOM site.

I wonder what the pay is like :plotting:

There have been a number of new posters on here recently with dodgy muslim sounding user names.

I think they were trying to cover their tracks.

Arrrrrrrrrrgh! Ten Whets, Ashies, Parapauks and that clown from the Czech Republic for the price of one. That must be a breach of the Law of Armed Conflict.

That wouldn't be HBGary Federal's (based in Sacramento CA) software for "persona management", would it? As leaked by Anonymous? And widely reported a month ago?

The Guardian seems to be reporting "olds" again ...
