Apparently I follow them on birdsite but anecdotally I don’t recall seeing any cross talk between them and the usual disinfo journalism/open source investigations/or disinfo academia crowds that I get a lot of my info from (I guess if I were more skilled up already that’s something I could map with actual data, huh).
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
