In episode 2 - 'The troll, the solicitor and the attorney' we look at the curious tale of Logical Campaign and the trolling of influential journalist Faisal Islam by apparently fictitious Twitter accounts.
Later in the show, Mike & John discuss the intervention of American politically motivated accounts promoting conversations about the Parson's Green terror attack on the London Underground - and unveil their 'Bot of the month'.
These show notes do not tell the story. They are designed to be viewed while listening to the audio, to help make sense of the story of Logical Campaign and other issues discussed in the show.
NOTE: Within a few hours of this podcast being published, Logical Campaign changed its Twitter bio and the Tom Michaels / Logical Campaign LinkedIn page disappeared.
More on this in episode 3.
