developments have prompted russia's foreign minister to again deny suggestions his country interfered in the u.s. presidential election because you know what because. without a single piece of proof we are as you know being accused of meddling not only in the u.s. election but also elections in european states recently there was navigation that moscow decided the minister to appoint in south africa there is no limit to fantasy . meanwhile right now lawyers for social media giants facebook twitter and google are testifying at a congressional hearing in washington d.c. it's part of the investigation into whether russia uses social media to influence last year's u.s. election the three companies have revealed they found more evidence of russian activities on their sites facebook says russia based operatives that published eighty thousand posts during and after the election it estimates that one hundred twenty six million americans could have seen those posts that's about half of the
10:12 pm
voting age population twitter found russian linked accounts generated one point four million election related tweets between september and november last year and half of them were automated google says pro russian groups uploaded more than a thousand videos to its you tube service well in his opening address the lawyer for facebook said the company is striving to do better. we have found that foreign actors used fake accounts to place ads on facebook and instagram that reached millions of americans over a two year period and that those ads were used to promote pages which in turn posted more content people shared these posts spreading them still further many of these ads and posts are inflammatory some are downright offensive and much of it will be particularly painful to communities that engaged with this content believing it to be authentic we'll have our times he joins us live now from
10:13 pm
washington d.c. so she had what are they trying to achieve with this hearing. but there are several goals depending on which which bit of this the committee and indeed the those those appearing before the committee ones thinking about the committee as a whole clearly wants to know what i actually happened what's the scale of the russian influence on these social media platforms the timeline when facebook google and others knew something weird was happening what they can do about it in the future the democratic members of the committee are keen to keep pushing this idea that russia hijacked the election that the social media activities completely social media activities or russia vindicate their position that one of the main reasons the and i sort of quite recovered from this that hillary clinton managed to lose the presidential election to donald trump was because there was this coordinated campaign from the kremlin that was to destroy hillary clinton in favor of dollar trouble that we've not seen any any evidence of that yet we just had
10:14 pm
opinions from various intelligence agencies for the technology companies they want to make it clear to congress that they're taking this seriously they were accusing the past of not taking it seriously now they're saying look we do take it seriously and we're acting and we're going to be able to try and keep investigating this and do something about this but we have to put those numbers into context because facebook and others a look at these numbers seen huge as you say one hundred twenty six million users may have seen some sort of content that may have originated somewhere in russia and so on but if you put that into the context of facebook's entire output that works out of one out of twenty three thousand one out of every twenty three thousand pieces of contents are point zero zero four percent of facebook content may or may not have originated somewhere in russia and may have something to do with the kremlin then what system may have been seen by by viewers what does that even mean to the something just appeared on our facebook feed that influence the election does that have that affect the way that i vote these are some of the more interesting questions that we hope will be explored not only in this congressional
10:15 pm
meeting or this congressional hearing but also in the in the hearings tomorrow on capitol hill which are perhaps a bit more substantial of what with the russians trying to do if they were by. this kind of content on social media seems like an odd way to try to influence an election especially since by by facebook's accounting many of these things are paid off to the election so how does that affect the election what is going on i think is what the rest of us want to know who don't necessarily have an agenda and how can we be careful to take a look at all of this stuff without reducing freedom of speech on social media that would be rather a great way to these these hearings could could could move forward although we certainly agendas are going to be on display in these hearings with it's difficult to know whether we'll actually get to those questions well we'll have to see if we do i know you'll be following all developments for us and we'll be checking in with you over the next few hours while this young continues for the moment thank you. and still to come in this half hour of news a shell said a school in one of syria's deescalation killing several children as the latest round of holds. and we look at some of the buildings vying for the u.k.'s most
