Overview

Social media platforms don't only connect people with their friends and family, they also connect terrorists, hackers, and trolls.

Clint Watts has been the Executive Officer of the Combating Terrorism Center at United States Military Academy at West Point and both a Special Agent and a consultant for the FBI. Watts now serves as a senior fellow at the Center for Cyber and Homeland Security at George Washington University and as a Fellow in the Foreign Policy Research Institute.

In Messing with the Enemy: Surviving in a Social Media World of Hackers, Terrorists, Russians, and Fake News, Watts shares his experience. Having dealt with multiple terrorist networks, foreign trolls, and propagandists, Watts explains how they recruit youngsters, shame their adversaries, and spread fake news through social media.

"Social media users, in their relentless pursuit of preferences, have selectively chosen information and expertise they like over that which is true or even real."
