20% of All Election Related Tweets Came From Non-Humans

Post  dirge on Sat Nov 12, 2016 1:21 pm

INFLUENCERS



With the elections done, let’s take a look at one of the most prolific source of political tweets during the campaign period — bots. Yes, you may well have been retweeting or replying to bots. This isn’t so terribly novel, but notably, they can seem as passionate as you are, and they have been given an AI upgrade.


A study published by researchers at the University of Southern California’s Information Sciences Institute recently examined just how influential these bots were (and are). And according to the authors, Alessandro Bessi and Emilio Ferrara, their presence is profound. The sheer number of them is alarming. They found roughly 400,000 bots in Twitter, and they made a massive amount of tweets, which made them surprisingly capable of distorting online debate.


According to the study, these 400,000 bots were behind 20 percent of all election related tweets. They were tweeting and being retweeted at a remarkable pace.

or put another way 80% of tweets were not by bots. About par for the course.

The inference here though is that they were all republican bots

how do you know I have been manipulated. Have you followed my timeline so much you know every tweet or retweet I have made.
Perhaps it is you that has been manipulated, which is more likely as you do seem to hold some very strange views.

Well its obvious you have been manipulated by the fact you are like the script from a Trump promotional video

No darling I research information and not blindly believe everything I hear or read
Like you who thinks people are not innocent but guilt before any charges or a trial
