The Rise of the Twitter Spies: Their Work Could Impact How Countries Are Held Accountable For War Crimes

From a Washington Post story by Pranshu Verma headlined “The rise of the Twitter spies”:

On most days, Kyle Glen is an ordinary 29-year-old working a clinical research job in Wales. But on March 6, as videos claiming to show the Russian army bombing a civilian escape route surfaced, his alternate identity kicked in: Twitter spy.

Some believed the video was faked to smear Russia; others pointed to it as evidence of Russian aggression. Glen’s task: verify if it was real.
