RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: Laut einer @email@example.com-Studie sollen also 28% der Tweets zum #Migrationspakt von #SocialBots kommen. Das klingt dramatisch. Aber was sagt diese Info über die wirklichen Einfluß auf Meinungsbildung in D aus?

RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: @email@example.com While I question the methodology, you should question the influence of automated accounts as well: https://mobile.twitter.com/wahl_beobachter/status/1072039125455437825 /12
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: - By hand. Look at the Tweets, at frequencies (@email@example.com), how they reply, if they can hold conversations, etc.. Lot's of work, needs experience, not viable for big numbers of accounts.
There is no reliable way. Machine learning with manual confirmation probably best. /5
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: The article doesn't explain how the bots were identified. Therefore it's impossible to confirm or falsify the claim.
I know of three approaches:
- Machine learning (botometer, botrnot, etc.). Features of accounts are compared to features of known bots (learning set). /3
RT @email@example.com: This paywalled article claims 28% of all Tweets about #migrationspakt were posted by bots and therefore the debate was significantly influenced by bots. I don't believe that and here ist why.
(Thanks @Heimatlost@twitter.com for bringing it to my attention.)
These efforts of scaring people away from helping and defending each other are among the worst tools for desolidarization of society. Don't let them get to you.
RT @AmnestyUK@twitter.com BREAKING: All 15 of the #Stansted15 have been convicted today. We stand in solidarity with them all. The rights and freedoms of all of us are being eroded. The UK should not be targeting human rights defenders in this way. Send the 15 a message of support: http://amn.st/6018EHyGE
RT @MikeSegalov@twitter.com: this is awful news. the #Stansted15 took part in a *peaceful* protest against our inhumane deportation system. multiple people on the flight stopped were being wrongfully deported. they should never have been charged with terror offences. statement here: http://enddeportations.com/2018/12/the-home-office-is-guilty-of-harm-not-us-stansted-15-respond-to-guilty-verdict/

RT @ProfImogenTyler@twitter.com: Footnote: If you read EP Thompson carefully (not romantically) the violent transition to industrial capitalism in England - enclosures, bread riots, machine-breaking, was characterised by competing class factions - including contradictory appeals to custom & ugly nationalisms
RT @ProfImogenTyler@twitter.com: . @email@example.com on #GilletJaunes as a “bread riot” (see EP Thompson) a response to neoliberal breaking of class compact which brings opposing forms of politics from below (racist nationalisms & anti-racist left politics) into confrontation on streets https://www.versobooks.com/blogs/4161-the-roundabout-riots

RT @firstname.lastname@example.org Vipassana’s singular objective is to hack the deepest layer of the mind and reprogram it: instead of unconsciously reacting to feelings of pain or pleasure, consciously observe that all pain and pleasure aren’t permanent, and will ultimately pass and dissolve away.
