So I read that twitter deleted hundreds of thousands Russian bot accounts last night. Apparently this action is having a massive impact on the mental health of the defectives on the right who thought they were real people.

Some of the replies are pure comedy gold. I heard a rumor that Hanity lost over 300,000 followers alone.

One thing for sure. This demonstrates just how easily right wingers can be, and are being, manipulated. Kinda like circus animals taught to do tricks, but slightly less evolved.

Here is a link to the article. metro.co.uk...

first, hilarious.

second, if twitter can purge bots cant they just prevent them or eliminate them right away?

i dont really get how it works but if there are that many bots out there then all of it is bull#.

Your OP is a heaping pile of BS.

Jack Dorsey suspended any account with any ties to anything that could be conceived as right leaning. Only if these users chose to give their phone # to Twitter would their account get reactivated.

But enough about that, my real question for you is:

How do YOU know the accounts were Russian bots? Did @Jack show his work or are you just taking his word at face value?

One thing is for sure. This demonstrates just how easily partisans can be, and are being, manipulated.

There are millions and millions of bots all across social media, and not just russian ones. It has been this way since it's inception.

..but let's pretend this is a big deal and we actually care.

Believe it or not, bots are a lucrative business. Normal people and celebrities buy them in the millions just to boost their popularity and brand.

I think I read somewhere that almost half the accounts on twitter are actually bots. Maybe not half, but a very high percentage.

Seriously? I just checked mine, its still good. My followers took went down by TWO(2), not sure if that is related or not.

I'm pretty critical with my acct and can usually see past the BS on some accts.

I didn't really start using Twitter till Trump and most followers/ followed were Trump supporters. I guess that's why I'm seeing it so obviously.

its wild there is so much money in it.

i assume its something like youtube.
bots equal page views which equal cash?

dude my daughter watches these videos of kids opening toys and playing with them. thats it. millions of views on probably hundreds of videos. i looked up how much those kinds of channels make and we are talking upwards of a few mill a year.

that is unreal to me.

so twitter is probably much the same

Yeah bots were deleted, not sure if they are all russsian

Next accounts that will rightly be stopped are the far right lunatics who are now claiming Jack Dorsey is a child molester after losing their fake friend echo chamber

sickening behaviour from disgusting individuals

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA.............hahahaha.......ha!

This is as comedic, if not even moreso, than watching thousands of desperate idiots claim that the kids who survived the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting - and are now speaking in favour of gun control - are somehow "crisis actors".

LOL. Just........LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.....

LOL.

In computer networking, IP address spoofing or IP spoofing is the creation of Internet Protocol (IP) packets with a false source IP address, for the purpose of hiding the identity of the sender or impersonating another computing system.[1] One technique which a sender may use to maintain anonymity is to use a proxy server.

If you think for one second da evil Russians don't know about this.

Think again.

Back to your regularly scheduled cyber false flag.
