Bots Behind Reopen Push on Social Media

I wonder which stealth DL threads are part of that orchestrated push? The one about the hot exhibitionists going outside and flashing their dicks?

Trolls and bots are flooding social media with disinformation encouraging states to end quarantine

Christopher Bouzy, the founder of bot tracking platform Bot Sentinel, conducted a Twitter analysis for Business Insider and found bots and trolls are using hashtags like #ReOpenNC, #ReopenAmericaNow, #StopTheMadness, #ENDTHESHUTDOWN, and #OperationGridlock to spread disinformation. According to Bouzy, the bots and trolls are spreading conspiracy theories about Democrats wanting to hurt the economy to make Trump look bad, Democrats trying to take away people's civil liberties, and Democrats trying to prevent people from voting. The accounts are also using false data to underplay the threat of the coronavirus.

"We use machine learning and artificial intelligence to classify accounts," Bouzy says. "Back in 2018, I trained the initial model using 2,500 normal Twitter accounts, and 2500 inauthentic accounts I was tracking for several months. Approximately 5,000,000 tweets were used to create the first model."

"Inauthentic accounts are amplifying disinformation and inaccurate statistics and sharing false information as a reason to reopen the country," Bouzy says. "Many of these accounts are also spreading bizarre conspiracy theories about Democrats using COVID-19 as a way to take away American freedoms and prevent Americans from voting . . .

Some healthy, young people who need to work are not bots if you must know. We cannot simply sit on our voluptuous ass all day watching drag shows like you do on your massively fat ass, OP.

Then get out and garden, R5. Or clean something. Make yourself useful.

Based on your prolific DL posting history, R5, it seems that you've been spending your entire days sitting on your voluptuous ass, posting to DL -- even before COVID-19 came along. I doubt very much that you are truly itching to get outdoors.

Why can't the social media giants utilize such analysis, and stop it in its track? Bot activity is a violation in all of their terms & conditions.

I use bot sentinel but it misses a whole lot of bots & trolls. Recently formed accounts show up as “normal” because they haven’t spammed a lot of threads with bot messages yet. In fact, most bots I’ve checked recently on bot sentinel are qualified as “normal.” It’s maddening.

I blame Botswana.

Imagine having to be the person in the russian troll factory assigned to spamming a gay gossip site. The things Igor has seen.... he will not be able to unsee.

JFC who cares? I'm going start blocking anybody who posts another fucking pandemic porn thread.

Are you kidding r15? Igor probably begs for the Datalounge shift. He gets to drool over cock AND earn his beet ration.

There was a thread here some three weeks ago asking what everyone would do first thing when the quarantine ended, which seemed to have the expectation that everyone would rush right out and congregate in public places. That one looked to me as though it was troll-authored.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
