Hi, @FrankPallone

I was one of the alleged bots #NotABot defamed for that @JoeSmyser @DrArturoNJ @NicholsonForNJ @PublicGoodProj @WSJ report.

Shall I expect an invite to @EnergyCommerce offices to sign in, in person, to my account?

We can also discuss manipulation of #data.
@FrankPallone @JoeSmyser @DrArturoNJ @NicholsonForNJ @PublicGoodProj @WSJ @EnergyCommerce 👈#NotABot we can discuss allegations as to why I and other's data has been used to accuse innocent people of committing what I consider crimes @JoeSmyser @DrArturoNJ @NicholsonForNJ @PublicGoodProj @WSJ @EnergyCommerce like marketing to children.

Hi #FBPE, we need to talk about #bots, I know many of you are informed and aware, but many more of us are not, and the whole #bot thing has got to a stage that IMHO we need more general awareness - thread⏬
Please share and RT
TLDR Summary
This thread isn't technical
It has some basic education
And then deals with strategic and political issues
IMHO bots are a bigger threat than many understand
Some networking across #FBPE could help
And maybe you can help
The rest of the thread explores these issues
Three steps for everyone
1. Education
Bots (& trolls, farms) are there to spread propaganda and fake news, to create dissent, undermine. Your first protection is knowing they exist and that you’ll meet them. Just reading this makes you safer. Be suspicious of unendorsed "friends"

Using hashtags and trending words - How not to make a hash of it on twitter - a thread.

Sadly I see too many people saying that they don't see the point of #hashtag ging - or that it is silly - or doesn't help....

So bear with me here...

This couldn't be further from the truth, using tags well, in any situation on twitter, helps you reach further and link up with other people

After the wonderful @EANBoard #SoMe4Epis module on social media for public health professionals, on request:

[THREAD] Here’s my bag of resources and explanations for beginners, to get started on social media

#epitwitter
Kicking off with an introduction to social media for scientists by @hollybik & @MiriamGoldste

All in the familiar academic format of a journal article: dx.plos.org/10.1371/journa…

#scicomm @PLOSBiology
So why engage in social media as an epidemiologist or public health professional?

It helps to build trust in science!

Many know I design #ConversationModels #Chatbots & #ai powered #VUI. Using that expertise for good is my mission in life. While twitter continues to close #FakeAccounts of the most egregious, and obvious, offenders - here is a primer to help our community spot & report #bots.
It’s important not to be swayed by #FakeAccounts or waste your time arguing with them. Identifying #bots in a Twitter thread has become a strange version of the Turing test. Here is are the data points you need to ID a #bot.
#ai #vui #chatbots #conversationmodels
User profile
The most common way to tell if an account is fake is to check out the profile. The most rudimentary #bots lack a photo, a link, or any bio. More sophisticated ones might use a photo stolen from the web, or an automatically generated account name.

Watched @ECMcLaughlin today on #ResistanceLive. I agree, if @SpeakerPelosi continues to slow roll an overarching inquiry, I too will be funding & supporting her primary opponent - I too have been montering across all social platforms and foreign #bots are using #PsyOpps to attack
#Systematic & #Sweeping: Psychological warfare is the planned tactical use of propaganda, threats, & other non-combat techniques during wars, threats of war, or periods of geopolitical unrest to mislead, intimidate, demoralize, or otherwise influence behavior of an enemy.
@Facebook & @Twitter have trumpeted initiatives designed to prevent a repeat of the #2016ElectionObstruction, yet this week is evidence of how little has changed about the way Facebook & Twitter actually operate.

Un nouveau #bot littéraire est né cette semaine durant notre atelier du mercredi ! Forcément, on meurt d’envie de vous montrer l’intérêt pédagogique d’une telle activité en classe… Vous l’aurez compris, ce #thread #vendredilecture est consacré au @LaFontaineBot !
Les #bot s littéraires fleurissent ces derniers temps sur Twitter : @AliceBot @LaRechercheBot @LoveBot67175596 @synesthobot #LynchBot #Oss117Bot #Baudelairebot … On s’est dit qu'il y avait là une activité intéressante pour travailler les compétences langagières en classe. #MDL
Créer un bot ça suppose des choix, alors on vous explique les nôtres...

During the last 18h, @MacDemission had 534 interactions (post, retweet, reply, quote) on Twitter. It's 0,5 interactions per minute. Obviously, this account is a #bot #misinformation #fakeNews #GiletsJaunes
By looking his timeline, you can see that this bot is retweeting all tweets with the hashtags #macronDemission #MacronDestitution and #Frexit
I was right, the bot retweeted my previous tweet...

During the last 3 hours, @DuPouvoirDachat had 227 interactions (post, retweet, reply, quote) on Twitter. It's 1,26 interactions per minute. This is the most active Twitter profile during this time. Obviously, this account is a #bot #fakeNews #misinformation
Worth to say, I'm capturing only the tweets with "Gilets Jaunes" or "GiletsJaunes" in the text. So the total number of interactions is bigger than that.

THREAD: Why weren’t faculty experts @UNC consulted on Silent Sam?
Thoughts on the #BOT’s proposal to install the Confederate monument on campus @UNC in a new University History & Education Center
The report ignores the fact that Silent Sam is a monument to Jim Crow white supremacy, as historians @UNC have shown. vox.com/the-big-idea/2…
The report ignores the fact that, according to art historians & artists @UNCArtDept, Silent Sam is “a powerful visual symbol erected as a form of white supremacist intimidation & in tacit defense of a racist social order.” art.unc.edu/about/departme…

With the american midterms fast approaching I think it's important to point out twitter still has a political #bot problem.

Checking the #Elecciones2018 hashtag alone you can find a lot of bot accounts.
i'm going to just highlight what a few of them look like, these are just the ones using @TweetDeck to run fully automated accounts.

So for the first time in quite a while a newcomer hashtag had top spot on the #Hamilton68 Dashboard -- #walkaway. We remembered seeing this hashtag in the past few weeks but didnt really know what it was or follow up on it. #infosec #opsec dashboard.securingdemocracy.org
The background story on this hashtag #walkaway is a little strange & the number of bots, trolls, & fake testimonial promoting this hashtag is even stranger. Here's an example of a completely fake tweet highlighted by @daveweigel #opsec #infosec
We decided to look retrospectively at our own reverse engineered #Hamilton68 data. This is a wordcloud of 22893 tweets from our main Hamilton68 troll subset going from June 24th until now & #walkaway takes the #1 spot. #infosec #opsec

1/ If human brains would have worked same way and everyone had same perspective of looking at things, then it would have been much easier to build an AI conversational system.

#AI #Chatbots #voiceassitant #NLP #ArtificialIntelligence #bot
2/ Everyone would have interacted with the system the same way and hence there would not be any possibility of the conversation going in wrong direction.
3/ So its difficult to build such systems that can take same input in different possible ways as compared to any other systems which take the input in standard format.

I'm seeing accounts call themselves "bot hunters" & run prominent resistance accounts thru sites like botcheck.me. If the site says the account is a #Bot, they tweet that info.

It's a tactic to discredit #Resistance accounts & sow #chaos & #Division. THREAD 1/5
These fake "bot hunters" count on people believing them & blocking the accounts they call bots. This reduces the resistance account's reach & effectiveness.

Educate yourself on identifying bots so you don't fall for it. 2/5 #panic #disinformation #chaos
If you want to learn about bots, this is a great article:

There is no automated bot service that is completely accurate. It's best to look for a collection of traits and evaluate the account's behavior & content. It requires reading & #thinking. 3/5

Going to try to tweet this as I work through it. Someone out there doesn't like facebook. At least 3-4 different freshly minted botnets are retweeting anything with the #DeleteFacebook hashtag.

the 1st "set" of bots is very similar to the elon musk cryptocurrency scammer bots that are running wild on twitter.

If no one has figured this out yet, the reason #Releasethememo trended on January 18th is that @realDonaldTrump's follower #bot army activated.
As an example: Here are 450 just "egg" accounts that all follow Trump that did the exact same thing on tnYiMyRxTKI
these accounts were created ON that date just to do one thing, trend that hashtag.
