In The Sprawl I see the video call “ Natalia Poklonskaya and Enjoykin — Nyash Myash” which is an anime video on YouTube about Natalia Poklonskaya, a Russian lawyer who got promoted to prosecutor-general after the annexation of Crimea. The Sprawl said this event was likely internet ‘astroturfing’ or a way to fake support for a policy or product through fabricated personas which later led to real-life fans and fan art, including illustrator with no interest in politics.
This event reminds me of IO or Information Operation, which is Military operations to threaten dissent and disseminate the thoughts and beliefs of their side to the target group. And cause ideas and beliefs conforming to the will of their side. This event happened in our country, and it is a reason that made me feel interested in the video.
A similar occurrence between these events is the transmission of information and the convergence of people on the Internet that go along with each other.
So I continued to look into why this conformity happened over the Internet, Conformity as A person’s changing behavior as a result of group pressures
