It's for spreading democracy to countries that have internet. It's irrelevant to America in the first place.
Or, is it? Dum-dun-dn-tst.

Most audited Twitter accounts have fake followers. Trump's numbers of fake followers are probably highest. You can buy active followers for Twitter, FB, Instagram. Most are not bot networks. They are actually people paid to follow and then make useful comments.
Here you go, I am a data kind of gal.

You're not saying a conservative would stage the facts to make it look better for their side are you?
Gosh, that's almost like ... using fake Twitter accounts.

They'll just dodge the fact he has 6 million FAKE followers, I'm surprised they haven't done a 180 and claimed twitter Audit is a leftist shill organisation out to get Trump.

guys we know bots aren't sentient, right?
they can't have a political affiliation, they can't be liberal? or anything else for that matter?
bots just go for keywords, and those keywords can be anything at all
some of them go after 'liberal' keywords, some after 'conservative' ones
not to push any particular agenda, but to generate traffic
that's all that matters to bots
and not only that but dealing with bots is just a part of modern social media
like i feel pretty safe guaranteeing that even in the Serious About Cooking section of twitter there'd be bots.
i mean unless i've stumbled on the sinister Jamie Oliver agenda?
maybe try being a shade less partisan?
