Russian bot deluge, swatting

Thought the Russian bot deluge that erupted prior to the 2016 election had come and gone .. This is particularly depressing as, with a crucial round of mid-term elections just a few weeks away.”

So what you are saying is that the American people took more notice of random tweets rather than the conventional media such as CNN. Seriously though, I accidentally switched it on the other day and if this is what passes for ‘news’ no wonder they've moved to Twitter News©.

The Seattle police are trying out a new program that would let people create profiles that would flag their residences and places of business as possible targets for "swatting" crimes.’

How about the SWAT teams not move in with all guns ablazing or stop responding to anonymous phone calls?
