Roughly half the Twitter accounts pushing to 'reopen America' are bots, researchers found
• There's been a surge in bot activity in the past month in online discussions about reopening America from COVID-19 shutdowns, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University said this week.
• The researchers analyzed over 200 million tweets discussing COVID-19 and found that roughly half the accounts were likely bots.
• They identified the bots by looking for accounts that tweeted more frequently than humanly possible or whose location appeared to rapidly switch among different countries.

OP, doesn't surprise me at all. Right-wingers are so easily manipulated it's pathetic.

They're dumb as dirt, lack any capacity for critical thinking, thanks to under-funded public schools and religious indoctrination, and are void of guilt when they willfully disseminate propaganda they know to be false, and some do know they're lying on behalf of their "cause".
