Based on Keyhole.co analysis @TEN_GOP pushed between midnight today and 0400 today a total of 52 tweets with the high volume being between 0000 and 0200.

If one factors in Russian time this would have been a working morning there at 0700 to 0800.....and virtually no tweets by 0400.....which would have been 1000 in Berlin and 1100 in Moscow.....

So the account pushes out the Russian influence tweets in the very early morning hours in the US so they can be picked up and retweeted by "Followers" of @TEN_GOP....when they are up and running in normal US time.....so one account can in fact span the entire US twitter landscape.......time wise for the entire US....

AND all of the account "Followers" never seem to notice the Russian influence operation using them as "retweeters"......

Many of these so called "retweeters" push as many as 35 to 50 retweets per day.....creating a lot of twitter trending volume....

Why So Many Top Hackers Hail from Russia

Quote:
Conventional wisdom says one reason so many hackers seem to hail from Russia and parts of the former Soviet Union is that these countries have traditionally placed a much greater emphasis than educational institutions in the West on teaching information technology in middle and high schools, and yet they lack a Silicon Valley-like pipeline to help talented IT experts#channel their skills into high-paying jobs. This post explores#the first part of that assumption by examining a breadth of open-source data.
The supply side of that conventional wisdom seems to be supported by an analysis of educational data from both the U.S. and Russia, which indicates there are several stark and important differences between how American students are taught and tested on IT subjects versus their counterparts in Eastern Europe.
