I screenshotted this one myself a few minutes ago:



That ain't coincidence folks. That's what bots look like in action. Not much else to be said.

EDIT:

Well that's embarassing. I was in a rush and I posted before I had really taken a look at the feeds in detail. They're all bots but it looks like it was a coincidence that the article they happened to be tweeting at the time I noticed them was about Conway's comments on Trump. It appears that they're pulling from RSS feeds of latest news stories and with the election/debate ithey're almost all Trump+Clinton.

Mea culpa, mea culpa!

Laugh that was funny.

Wooo! Great retort.

Way to go into details with your impeccable fact checking to disprove the OP's contention.

Is it twitter faux-pas to quote the title to the linked article in a tweet? Sincere question.

Are you getting flagged for saying something against the Don?

Of course he has bots. Anything that helps is called "strategy" and the bots are one of his more benign strategies.
But, in his defense, he is not a professional politician, so his lies don't count. After he is elected president he promises to us, "his" people, that among other things, he will be a born again Christian and will stop cheating people out of their money, assaulting women, lying about everything, and playing footsie with Putin. So, just vote for him and he will reform all his bad behavior, even the bots.

I' don't know Twitter that well. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. They do look suspicious, and they don't look like actual titles.

Believing Trump will change is more ignorant than believing in God.

We don't want Trump to change, we know exactly what we are getting. Unlike Hillary who has one face for the public and another for private back room meetings. She is the real wild card in this election.

Yep both sides do it, and it is terrible.

Its why I don't give much creedence to how many twitter followers someone has, etc.

However, I find the main stream medias bias much more concerning. Regardless of who you are voting for, don't y9u find it troubling how the main stream media along with the entertainment industry have become a one sided propaganda machine?

Its all good now because they are after Trump, but lets not forget they helped defeat the campaigns of Ron Paul, bernie, Gary Johnson, Jill Stein, and who knows who else in the future.

That seems to be a far bigger concern that crappy Twitter bots.

Speaking of bots.





At least you can chalk up Trump supporters to just being trolls... like the MSM did after the last debate. But only one candidate has SuperPAC's that are openly funneling millions of dollars into organizations like Control The Record.

Ain't that the truth.

But still, it is an interesting point how automated much of it has become. If the mainstream media isn't behind bots, nor any group is funding them, then it is likely some kid waging an underground propaganda battle of his own.

Well you can look for yourself. You'll notice that they're tweeting the same articles, never anything but and pumping them out at a rate of maybe 4-5 an hour.

Boom goes the dynamite.

I suppose the op should ask a mod to have title changed.

I believe you. But what is the point of that, to bump up CNN traffic?
