The Russians aren't just hacking emails to influence US politics. According to a report sent to US counterintelligence officials last month, Russia has started to use Twitter in it's attack on our country. The report round that Russians sent infected messages to more than 10,000 Defense Department Twitter accounts, each tailored to the individuals' interests and tastes. The attached malware connected those users to a server that gave Russia access to the victim's Twitter account. Imagine thousands of legitimate Twitter users with the legitimacy of actual government officials sending out authentic-sounding misinformation and you'll have an idea of the panic this may have caused among intelligence officials.
