A coordinated network of fake accounts posed as Sikh personas to promote the Indian Govt, nationalism & label Sikh activists as terrorists. BBC

A network of fake social media profiles of people claiming to be Sikhs, and promoting divisive narratives, has been exposed.
A new report shared exclusively with the BBC ahead of its publication on Wednesday identified 80 accounts in the network, which have now been suspended because they were fake.
The influence operation used accounts across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to promote Hindu nationalism and pro-Indian government narratives.
The aim of the network appears to have been to "alter perceptions on important issues around Sikh independence, human rights and values", according to the report's author, Benjamin Strick.
The network used so-called "sock puppet" accounts, which are fake ones controlled by real people posing as independent individuals, rather than automated "bots".

If our hands bleed from thorns, it means that the rose is near. @SahleWorkZewde

The falcon cannot hear the falconer


Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity.

Does the reinstatement of the prime minister reverse the coup? @Smith_JeffreyT

No. The military retains overall control, and by prescribing a technocratic cabinet, the agreement further sidelines #Sudan’s political parties and the pro-democracy protest movement.

This increases the population of the East African Community by 46%, from 195m to 285m. @RencapMan

Kenya was 28% of the old group, but will now be 19% after #DRCongo joins, while Congo is nearly a third (31%) of the EAC combined population.

In GDP terms though, #DRCongo adds 23%, pushing EAC up from $238bn to $294bn. @RencapMan

Kenya is still top. It was 46% of the East African Community (2021 GDP estimate) and becomes 37% with #DRCongo joining. Kenya and Uganda together are half the economic size of the EAC after DRC joins.
