Savvas Zannettou, Tristan Caulfield, William Setzer, Michael Sirivianos, Gianluca Stringhini, Jeremy Blackburn. Arxiv, 2019. DOI:&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="https://zenodo.org/record/2558560"&gt;10.5281/zenodo.2558560&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The dataset consists of the data released by Twitter on October 2018 for Russian and Iranian state-sponsored troll accounts, which is available at &lt;a href="https://about.twitter.com/en_us/values/elections-integrity.html?fbclid=IwAR0ytC6Q_Jawg6ao57H4oWpA4D6wROvYGqDF0E-tI9hoCIEeX4M-BvXAT9s#data"&gt;https://about.twitter.com/en_us/values/elections-integrity.html#data&lt;/a&gt; as well as intermediate data that we generated after processing the raw data.&lt;br&gt;
For instance, we include trained Word2Vec and LDA models, the output of our influence estimation experiments via Hawkes Processes, and a lot of other data necessary to reproduce the results in the paper.&lt;br&gt;
To use the provided data simply download the compressed file from &amp;lt;URL&amp;gt; and make sure that the uncompressed &lt;code&gt;data&lt;/code&gt; folder is in the same directory as the IPython Notebook.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The code used for this study can be found here:&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="https://github.com/zsavvas/trolls_analysis"&gt;https://github.com/zsavvas/trolls_analysis&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
