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".

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.
