Release: .Win Network

Courtesy of the Social Media Analysis Toolkit, 1.8 million posts and comments deleted from TheDonald.Win and other .Win network sites

Continuing our work to archive data related to the January 6 coup attempt in Washington D.C. and the online activities of global white supremacy movements, we are publishing 4.5 GB of data from the .Win networks of sites.

This data was collected and has been indexed for searches by the researchers from SMAT (Social Media Analysis Toolkit). The raw data hasn't previously been made available to journalists and researchers. Thank you to SMAT, for this new resource.

From Mother Jones:

The posters’ deleted content included maps of the Capitol, manifestos about their intentions upon arriving, discussion about flouting D.C.’s strict gun laws, and praise of extremist groups like the Proud Boys.

Edited to add: TheDonald posts are already appearing as evidence for incitement in the Senate impeachment trial. Screenshot during one of yesterday’s presentations from House impeachment manager Stacey Plaskett:
