Prosecutors Say These Two Russian Troll Accounts Messed With The 2016 Election. Here Are 50 Of Their Most Popular Tweets.

Thirteen Russian nationals and three Russian entities were indicted for meddling with the 2016 US election. Read 50 of their most popular tweets.

Posted on February 16, 2018, at 3:08 p.m. ET

A federal grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for meddling with the 2016 US election, saying they "operated social media pages and groups designed to attract U.S. audiences" that "addressed divisive U.S. political and social issues, falsely claimed to be controlled by U.S. activists."

The indictment said two specific Twitter handles — @TEN_GOP and @March_for_Trump — were made to mislead the American public. Russian actors falsely claimed that their Twitter account @TEN_GOP was controlled by a state political party. The defendants used @March_for_Trump to organize "coordinate rallies in Florida," according to the indictment reads.

BuzzFeed News combed through 200,000 now-deleted Russian troll tweets recently made available by NBC News to find these two accounts' 50 most popular tweets.

They are listed below with their dates of publication, retweets, favorites and text content.
