The One Where Tumblr Sends Me An Email About All The Bots I Followed

So I finally got my Tumblr email detailing to me all the Russian bot accounts I unknowingly retumbled or liked or followed or what-have-you:

As part of our commitment to transparency, we want you to know that we uncovered and terminated 84 accounts linked to Internet Research Agency or IRA (a group closely tied to the the Russian government) posing as members of the Tumblr community.

The IRA engages in electronic disinformation and propaganda campaigns around the world using phony social media accounts. When we uncovered these accounts, we notified law enforcement, terminated the accounts, and deleted their original posts.

And then the accounts are listed. My favorite, at least in terms of account name?
