Funneling To Private Channels

From ADTAC Disinformation Inventory

ADT004 added February 15th 2021

When an actor publicly advertises itself and tries to get followers to join them on encrypted channels so they can discuss topics that are not acceptable in public (e.g. extremist/illegal).

Ex. Actors such as far-right groups like TRR media[1] or Russian disinformation groups have used this technique.[2]
