Facebook Scrubs Potentially Damning Russia Data

Facebook reportedly scrubbed thousands of posts shared during the 2016 campaign by accounts linked to Russia. The removals came as a Columbia University researcher was examining their reach. The social media company said the posts were removed to fix a glitch. The researcher discovered the content had reached a far broader audience than Facebook initially acknowledged,. He told the Washington Post on Wednesday that the data had allowed him "to at least reconstruct some of the pieces of the puzzle" of Russia's election interference.
