British Army to establish a brigade of trolls

77 Brigade - the troll brigade

77 Brigade – the troll brigade

The British Army is to establish a brigade of trolls to be on active service on social media, in discussion forums, to alter opinion.

The 77 Brigade will be based in Hermitage, Berkshire and will be formally created in April 2015.

If you are in the Army, on active service, you wear your uniform.

Will the trolls be identifying themselves with name, rank and number, when posting?

Is this what the State should be doing, trying to pervert discussions via a brigade of trolls?

We already have right-wing think tanks trolling social media and discussion forums. We have the police infiltrating activists. Now we have the State trolling.

The advice on trolls now applies even more so, block, never engage. Do not feed trolls.
