I just watched Chris Jansing interview Ben Collins and finally found the same article you posted. MSNBC doesn't make it easy to find anything. I used google to search and that was useless.

Did everyone read this from the OP?

"These bots, however, did not appear to come from Russia. Instead, the bots had ties to a social media operation that previously pushed messages backing the government of Saudi Arabia and were connected to a person who claimed to be a private social media consultant, according to internet domain and account registration records. The bots, which were created last November and December, were pulled down by Twitter on Sunday night for breaking the social network’s rules against “manipulation,” the company said."

This news puts into perspective Jared Kushner's cutesy answers in the Time 100 interview. They didn't win the election because of a few Facebook posts. Ha! He sure learned how to say stupid stuff in a short amount of time in the political world.
