Fake followers, fake votes, fake head, so what? It's working, blame your lampshade neighbor for being a useful idiot.

Are we sure it can distinguish bots from liberals?

Is there actually a difference?

Bots don't have emotions, liberals do.

1) SparkTuro had difficulty identifying the owners of the acounts, which doesn't make all of them fake, though many are.

2) Marketers and bots are common on Twitter: "SparkToro used the same audit on Musk himself and found that nearly 70.2% of Musk’s 93.3 million Twitter followers were fake."

Twitter isn't a platform designed properly for human conversation, so it's probably all really bots or bot-like human content. The design doesn't work for interaction, just for notification feeds. Any interaction should be assumed fake.

It works for memes. The problem is that Twitter has no integrity and they manipulate your feed and what you can say. A free Twitter like platform, if actually popular, could absolutely destroy the trance that the media has over people. It would be very hard for people to be insulated from outside ideas.

That's nothing. Two thirds of his voters were fake, too.

It's a shame no one thought to audit the vote.
