The @irstudents Twitter account, which operates under the name of "Students of the Right wing of Israel," is sending politicians and journalists in Israel a connection to a false story that the Netanyahu family bought the property of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, the Israeli Foreign Ministry said on Twitter.

Clicking on the article leads to an error page, the ministry said. The site is being reviewed to ensure that this is not a phishing attempt. It is recommended not to click on the link.

"This is definitely a misinformation attempt since the identification of this Twitter account (1078207107705569280) is under control," said the Ministry. "Until a few days ago, the account was operated under the user name @ LucyDayan1, the profile name" Lucy Dayan "and" Family & friends | design | interior | food | travel | digital | policy. "Their operators have changed the name for this operation."

In January, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the technology company launched a program to share information about social network accounts that spread misinformation, which has increased since early elections were announced.

At that time, the ministry said that journalists were the subject of five attempts by foreign Twitter accounts to spread false news in Israeli media.

In all cases, an account that seemed to come from Europe contacted Israeli journalists with false history, in an attempt to give legitimacy. Each account was connected to hundreds of "robots": the conversion accounts made by robots, rather than individual people, that made the account get in touch with journalists seemed like a real account following it and retweeted and liking their tweets.

Last week, Or Jerusalem Post He learned that more than 400 Twitter accounts that belonged to at least six different "external handling networks" that tried to skew political opinion in Israel were suspended since the elections were convened at the end of December.

A senior official from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs told the Post that the Ministry has created a high level channel with the Twitter authorities in San Francisco led by Noam Katz, Deputy General Director of the Ministry for public diplomacy.

"This channel facilitates the ongoing exchange of incrimination [big] data related to Twitter robot networks, simulators and ID accounts directly between the R & D forensic unit of the Ministry and the teams responsible for the integrity of the system on Twitter of San Francisco, "said the official.
