This is the evidence of Russian interference in American politics.

Compiled and published by Professors Darren Linvill and Patrick Warren with FiveThirtyEight, these tweets are all from the Internet Research Agency – the so-called troll factory run by the Russian government to shape American politics.

The data they've released contains nearly 3 million tweets, posted by thousands of different accounts. Each record includes the author, the publication date, and some limited metadata about the language, location, and nature of the account.
