Delete your account: How social media may be metastasizing terror in service of Hamas

Israeli journalist and academic Guy Rolnik warns of the dangers of social media platforms in the wake of Hamas's brutal attack on southern Israel. Rolnik had been investigating the impact of social media on society and global politics and had warned of the potential disaster it could cause. He recounts how his family members and friends were influenced by anti-Israel sentiments on social media platforms, leading him to believe that a carefully planned and heavily financed campaign was underway. Rolnik alleges that social media platforms were used to incite large audiences in different places using customized propaganda, disseminated by bots, avatars, and sock puppet accounts. He calls for people to disconnect from social media as much as possible.
