‘Disinformation Project’ researcher mass blocks Twitter users

Sanjana Hattotuwa news

Dr. Sanjana Hattotuwa has appeared on television and in print legacy media discussing misinformation / disinformation.

Mulitple Twitter users have noticed Hattotuwa has blocked them on the micro-blogging platform – even if they have never had any interaction with his account.

DTNZ is among those he has blocked.

Speculation is growing as to the reason behind the bizarre move, with some internet sleuths believing it to be a test for manipulation of Twitter’s algorithm. Elon Musk released part of the algorithm to the public last week.

Hattotuwa specialises in analysing online discourse. Twitter users recommended blocking him back as a counter measure.

    • Chantelle Baker, Operation Freedom site. It was their most recent Intelligence Report. And yes, I agree, the man (a guess on my part) is a clearly the front runner for this years hypocrisy medal awards.

  2. And who gives a **** about some 3rd world nono who gets elevated by the commie crowd? Should go back to the s***hole where he came from instead of undermining our society.
