Analyzing a suspended Twitter network in India

An interdisciplinary program studying Internet abuse and providing thoughtful policy and technical solutions shared an analysis of a pro-Indian military covert influence operation on Twitter.

“Today we’re publishing a report analyzing a suspended Twitter network that likely originated in India,” the Stanford Internet Observatory tweeted.

Shelby Grossman, Emily Tianshi, David Thiel and Renee DiResta authored the report, titled “My Heart Belongs to Kashmir: An Analysis of a Covert Pro-India Army Twitter Influence Operation.”

The introduction states: “This suspended network promotes the activities of the Indian Army, particularly in Kashmir, and criticizes Pakistan and China.

“Two accounts in particular, @KashmirTraitors and @KashmirTraitor1, stood out for targeting individuals perceived to be anti-India. While we have not been able to determine who runs these suspended Twitter accounts, we note that the Chinese Corps’ official Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts have been temporarily suspended in the past, and Indian Army officials told reporters that the reason cited for the Facebook suspension and Instagram’s Meta Policy for Coordinated Inauthentic Behavior.

“The content of the Twitter network discussed in this report was consistent with the objectives of the Chinar Corps. This suspended network is large and political. Our report only scratches the surface. We encourage researchers—especially those who are members of the new Twitter Moderation Research Consortium—to delve further into this network.

“We also encourage researchers and reporters with expertise in India and Pakistan to further investigate @KashmirTraitors and @KashmirTraitor1; the latter is heavily archived”
