This free tool maps propaganda and misinformation as it goes viral

Researchers at Indiana University's Observatory on Social Media have created a tool aimed at helping journalists and the general public spot automated social media campaigns while they are happening.

One focus of the work has been to devise ways to identify inauthentic accounts being run with the help of software, rather than by individual humans. The team also develops maps of how online misinformation spreads among people and how it competes with reliable information sources across social media sites.

Perhaps you could share this info with IT. Could this be useful to combat healthcare misinformation?
