Reuters reveals inside the fight for Myanmar’s soul

Reuters exclusively revealed how Myanmar’s junta is using fake social media accounts to denounce opponents and press its message that it seized power to save the nation from election fraud. The army, which was banned by the country’s dominant online platform Facebook after the Feb. 1 coup, has tasked thousands of soldiers with conducting what is widely referred to in the military as “information combat”, according to eight people with knowledge of the tactic, including four military sources.
