Army denies being behind Twitter information warfare campaign

The Royal Thai Army (RTA) denied on Friday reports that they were behind a network conducting information warfare campaigns against student protest leaders and opposition politicians.

Colonel Sirijan Ngathong, the deputy spokesperson for the RTA, said that the network has not conclusively been identified and to assume that they were under the command of the army was “unfair.”

“This revelation lacks any deep analytical approach and the identity of the network is still unverified,” she said. “These accounts were not part of the official accounts of the army.”

She also said that Twitter’s accusation is based only on the number of tweets, frequency, and hashtags that anyone could use.

She said the only twitter account that the RTA uses is its official one, namely @armypr_news.
