BREAKING: Facebook just announced that it's taken down 82 pages, groups and accounts, originating in Iran, that targeted the US (and UK). @DFRLab had a look at some of them just before the takedown. Thread coming on what we found. https://t.co/qqyCJT0Iwj
Top line: this looked like an Iranian operation which learned from the Russian troll operations.
Divisive content and political agitation, especially against Trump and GOP, but attacks on Saudi Arabia and Israel thrown into the mix. pic.twitter.com/MPeaILUkqE
