Disrupting Disinformation


We are awash in disinformation consisting of lies and conspiracies, with real-world implications ranging from horrific humans rights violations to threats to our democracy and global public health. Although the internet is vast, the peddlers of disinformation appear to be more localized. I will describe a domain-level analysis for predicting if a domain is complicit in distributing or amplifying disinformation. This process analyzes the underlying domain content and the hyperlinking connectivity between domains to predict if a domain is peddling in disinformation. These basic insights extend to an analysis of disinformation on Telegram and Twitter.
