This paper presents the initial results of an ongoing study on developing a digital toolkit for experimentation with social media content in Bulgarian aimed at discovering disinformation. This effort is aimed at providing a basis for systematic studies of Bulgarian social media content. The initial datasets used for experiments are related to the Covid-19 pandemic on samples of posts from Facebook and Twitter. The paper also describes some initial ideas on building an infrastructure for collaboration in social media research in Bulgarian.
