Cambridge Analytica Linked to Russian Trolls?
Senator Klobuchar asked Zuckerberg whether Cambridge Analytica and the Russian disinformation campaign run out of Saint Petersburg’s Internet Research Agency (IRA) many have been targeting the same users.
"We're investigating that now. We believe that it is entirely possible that there will be a connection there,” Zuckerberg answered.
Facebook estimates that 126 million people were exposed to IRA content on its platform while 87 million of its users’ data was swept up by Cambridge Analytica, but this is the first suggestion by the company that there may be a link between the two.
