Found a pretty lengthy but interesting article about the inner workings of a trollfarm in Poland.
Just FYI.

Drumpf's digital media director/campaign manager, Brad Parscale, figured this out back in 2016. To great effect. :(

The thing that scared me the most about that article is that they don't care who they advocate for. No political agenda, just money buys them.

With the Internet Research Agency it at least seemed different. Those guys seemed to be a trollfarm controlled by the russian state/the Kreml. But not with these guys from Poland. They just sell themselves for money and have no own agenda. Yeah, well, it's the logical next step in not total regimes, I guess. Stil, it's kind of unnerving. Especially in times like these.
