We've spent a lot of time this year here at SecureWorld covering Russia's information campaign efforts on Facebook and Twitter.

But what if social media was used against our troops on the battlefield during a war?

The possibility is so real that the U.S. military now has troops training for "hybrid war" using a social media simulator. 

We are fascinated by this: "A computer program by Cubic is helping to train these troops to sort through tweets, other social media posts, and real and fake news; figure out which posts might be pouring fuel on a local fire, and react to them."
