That's a tiny amount compared to Twitter's estimated 69 million active monthly users in America, and 328 million globally, but we note that the web upstart hasn't said how many people total saw Moscow's retweeted or liked disinformation.
In a post on its blog, the social media platform said it had suspended 1,062 new accounts linked to "a number of accounts that were potentially connected to a propaganda effort by a Russian government-linked organization known as the Internet Research Agency".
Albright said during a recent study he identified 3,746 tweets he said were from IRA-linked accounts that were still live on the service.
Twitter underestimated the number of accounts spreading Russian propaganda by more than ten thousand, the company quietly disclosed late Friday.
Last October, Twitter had revealed about finding 2,752 IRA-linked accounts.
Twitter will email 677,775 people in the United States to let them know that they interacted with Russian propaganda during the 2016 presidential election, the company said in a blog post Friday.

The #releasethememo hashtag was tweeted by these accounts almost 4,000 in the last couple of days, the firm said.
Donald Trump Jr. also followed the @TEN_GOP account, CNN found. That account, which used the pseudonym "Jenna Abrams", developed a persona of a conservative American woman, and amassed a following of more than 70,000.
Twitter's initial report issued in September relied on a separate assessment by Facebook.
Twitter on Friday said the number of Russia-linked accounts firing off tweets evidently aimed at the U.S. election in 2016 was more widespread than initially determined.
Both companies appeared to time these announcements for moments when they would get less attention than they might otherwise. In its Friday disclosure, Twitter did not take the opportunity to acknowledge how the remaining percentage of these posts, which included anything from "I'm a real person" idle banter to indirect and divisive messaging, may have ultimately contributed to the troll farm's impact. And the company sought to underline how small a portion of the activity on Twitter these accounts represented before the accounts were removed.
