“The Fishwrap campaign consisted of three clusters of accounts. The first wave was active from May to October of 2018, after which many of the accounts shut down; a second wave launched in November of 2018 and remained active through April 2019. And some accounts remained active for the entire period. All of the accounts used domain shorteners hosted on a total of 10 domains but using identical code.” – via Sean Gallagher, reporting for Ars Technica
