Web 3.0 Lab: The Structure an Nature of a Troll Bomb

Discussing the nature and structure of a Troll Bomb, like the one carried out by Bahrain before their crack down on peaceful protesters.

We believe a Troll Army attack upon social networks is a much a potential cyber threat as crackers. And will be much harder to combat.

Troll attacks on social networks like YouTube and Twitter are likely going to be the next major security concern. Human rights groups trying to use social networks to effect change in their nations are particularly vulnerable.

Currently we are analyzing the data from the situation in Bahrain, identifying patterns in such attacks to develop analysis tools for future use by human rights groups and business trying to protect their reputation. Maybe even the good people at Twitter will take a notice.
