According to the UK's left wing skwawkbox it was more than 800 acconts, many of which were well established left wing sites.

Given the level of co-ordination with twitter, this looks less like an attack on foreign interference and more using this as cover to obliterate the left's access to major public fora in the US.

It has been so blatant that a lot of UK left blogs are co-ordinating other means of publicising themselves

Article 11: no link without a license. Article 11, otherwise known as the "Linktax" article, has created a new economic "right" for magnates of the written press. This `right', moreover, implies indefinitely restricting the possibility of citing the press online.


Article 13: no uploading content without a license. Platforms - from medium-sized providers of services storing subject material through to the giants of the Internet - will be considered responsible for any copyright infringement committed by their users, and they are bulldozed into taking preventive measures. In other words, this isn't a matter of eliminating content but directly preventing people from uploading it.
