Investigation into accounts containing disinformation before the May 14 elections: The Directorate of Communications took action!


Recently, it was determined that behind the presidential candidate of the Nation Alliance, which is also supported by HDP, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, there is a huge troll network that can reach 40 million social media users at the same time. The news that 121 accounts with high followers constantly produce fake content in order to overshadow the security of the ballot boxes and create a trust problem in the society was on the agenda like a bomb.

It was determined that the determined networks produced manipulative content by acting together especially in sensitive periods, especially against refugees. It has been determined that the #HelpTurkey tag used in the pandemic period, the forest fires in 2021 and the posts that spread fear and make the public uneasy were made through these networks, which also took an active role in the process of the February 6 earthquakes.


Accounts in these networks use the method of periodically changing their usernames and content concepts in order not to be limited to a single audience and to spread their shares to the whole society. In this way, networks reach different demographic structures.
