[Thread] ⚠️ Small warning about Bots/automated strategies on TradingView - even if you're not a developer some of you may be thinking of subscribing to someone's paid-for bot after seeing their apparently impressive results, you should read this first..

#bots #tradingview #ats
I've done fairly extensive research here: T.V.s backtester is a bit buggy making its backtest results questionable. These bugs can manifest in many spurious 'false positives' here's what I've found:
#1 Heikin-Ashi; this is a well known problem. HA candles can be useful in a bot's algo. But their Open & Close price is not the same as the *real* O & C and it's the HA values which T.V. uses to calculate profit & loss. It can be wildly wrong and produce runaway false positives.

After the threads from @conspirator0 and @propornot re: @propornotapp (now suspended), decided to look for any interesting breadcrumbs they may have left behind. Wound up learning about #Nationalist parties of Bulgaria and a few other tidbits. #osint #bots #disinformation
First thing that turned up was this article from the site newsbeezer(.)com (site title: Bulgaria Evening News). As you can see in the screenshot, @PropOrNotApp is quoted discussing conditions during fires in neighboring Greece. Sure, why not?
What else is on this site? Well, they appear to be big fans of the National Front for the Salvation of Bulgaria, normally abbreviated to NFSB, though oddly they seem to alternate the abbreviation between NFFS and NPSB. Neither appear affiliated with another political party.

A rant thread, because I am pissed off.
I’m tired of being told that I must “respect” a gerrymandered referendum won by wealthy bigots with backhanders, bullshit, #bots, the BBC & Boris Johnson, a man of no principles whatsoever, whom I despise with all my heart.
Meanwhile,
1/
those who happily take our taxes & our votes to uphold & protect our democracy as Parliamentarians, have instead stood by wringing their hands, as it is dismantled. With very few honourable exceptions, they have not only ignored & tacitly accepted the law-breaking uncovered
2/
by the Electoral Commission, but have meekly prostrated themselves before the very worst elements in the Tory & Labour parties, & wannabes like Farage & Banks. All in the name of “respecting” that which they should condemn.
The extremists, radicals, racists & reprobates

Good afternoon #TXSen, #BetoForTexas, #CruzCrew folks. Thought I would do an update to highlight social media manipulation within the Texas Senate race. What I have done is collected tweets on those accounts who have tweeted the most #TXSen content over the past two weeks...
Forgive me for the lazy charts, I'm pretty lazy when it comes to visualization.

Top Hashtags show a pretty distinct motivation on these accounts - to push Pro-@tedcruz messaging at a high rate. Fairly coordinated as we can see from the top 25 Tweets.
We can see how negative/positive their messaging is by analyzing their Sentiment using NLTK's Vader analysis.

Like most directed flow networks I have been analyzing, the content seems to be increasing as we get closer to election day.

I've been working on two big projects for several months, one is finally finished tonight. #QAnon network visualizations: medium.com/@erin_gallaghe…
#QAnon trends appear to be connected to Twitter rooms, high-volume accounts and a conservative political marketing firm called AppSame.

This is a user-to-user @gephi graph of 51,437 #QAnon tweets  from May 3 to May 11 medium.com/@erin_gallaghe… #dataviz
I constantly find high-volume accounts in certain hashtags and they are present in #QAnon networks. These high-volume accounts are hubs in Twitter networks. Here’s what some of the high-volume hubs look like in 8 days of #QAnon tweets from May 3 to May 11 medium.com/@erin_gallaghe…

@JustinTrudeau Watch:
Nearly 1/3 of all RT's on this tweet are #Bots.
Go ahead - Look.
Nearly 1/3 of all positive comments regarding PMJT are #Fake accounts.
Click on them - Look.
#SocialEngineering is happening right in front of you. You are being manipulated.
@JustinTrudeau Wattch. A simple screenshot and then click on the supporters. You'll see that most are fake. #SocialEngineering
You are being #Manipulated
Let me demonstrate: 1. ➡

Remember when conservatives got the # trending to release the memo? Liberals were convinced that it was #Bots!

WE ARE NOT BOTS‼️ But they like to call us bots. They write software programs that identify real life people - conservatives- as bots to justify their censorship!
Conservatives! Listen up! Those apps that supposedly identify bots - they specifically target Trump supporters!

Don’t go around blocking & reporting your fellow conservatives based on the results of these stupid apps‼️

If you think an acct might be a bot, ask to phone them!
🙏🏻 There are apps like Telegram that allow for making a phone call without sharing your phone number or your email address.

Please don’t let these Resistance Liberals use you as a pawn in their mission to divide & silence conservatives‼️

I thought I would give a go at a nice little tweet thread today, sharing my key takeaways from #DWX18.
Monday started off with workshops from some amazing teachers like Dion Hinchcliffe, Tony Byrne, Rita Zonius, and Edward Taylor and Kevin Olp of @DWG. #DWX18 #KeyTakeaways
.@RitaZonius coached her attendees not focus on adoption. Build value and adoption will follow. This got me thinking that maybe we should rethink how we use that label in our efforts. #DWX18 #KeyTakeaways

Thread zum Thema #AfD Trollfabrik:

Ich habe 10 der mir bekanntesten #noAfD-Accounts und deren Supporter etwas genauer angeschaut. Da ich so ziemlich bei allen gesperrt bin, hat mir mein Nachbar @AndiLutz80 dabei etwas geholfen.
Mein Hauptaugenmerk lag darauf, welchen Accounts die zehn Kandidaten folgen. Eines fiel mir sofort auf: @MalteKaufmann #MalteKaufmann (MK) folgt dreimal so vielen Accounts, wie die anderen neun zusammen das tun. Muß erst mal nichts heißen?!
AfD Ofizielle/Supporter - Anzahl der Accounts denen sie folgen

@MalteKaufmann 9400
@Beatrix_vStorch 710
@JensMaierAfD 540
@Alice_Weidel 520
@Joerg_Meuthen 500
@SteinbachErika 320
@KrahMax 300
@BjoernHoecke 160
@Uwe_Junge_MdL 150
@Steinhoefel 145

let's go on a #bothunt
You can still find most of these #russian #bots yourself.
And they did retweet during the #UK general election for Labour leader #JeremyCorbyn
thetimes.co.uk/article/expose…
some clues are the date ranges provided and the account types
1st thing we do is check @jeremycorbyn's timeline. He only has 9k tweets so we should be able to get the tweet IDs for that date range(may-june 2017)

After 70 years of imperial/neoliberal indoctrination the web of lies is so obviously absurde (9/11, Skripal, WH = ISIS, etc.), that it is dissoluting. The empathetic humanity connects, closes ranks and sends their eternal psychopathic rulers and their lackeys into nowhere land.
The "evil empire" is a lifelong three year old child. I certainly loved my children at that age too, however only because they created not only a surreal mess, but also made steady progress.

A great documentary about psychopathy and society:
The elite invented "democracy" to protect them from the empathetic people. The media are their means for misleading the people sedated by "democracy". This is definitely a bad thing since the people have become educated and the elite almost totally insane.

1) Friends, #Q post from yesterday indicates a plan to discredit #QAnon is being deployed. Here is what to watch for and expect.

They're panicked & desperate, recent events are starting to zero in on the #cabal's deepest secret. Some thoughts...

#WWG1WGA #MAGA #TheStorm @POTUS
2) The recent #NYTimes op-ed on #Qanon was huge. Our response was magical. Measured, fact based, not R v D, and polite. #WeThePeople did a brilliant job. At last check it was over 700 comments and very few retwteets.

#GreatAwakenening #QArmy #Q #MAGA

nytimes.com/2018/04/06/opi…
3) Keep this tactic alive. The new wave, per #Q's drop, will be coming from the ever grumpy #4chan which goes absolutely mental over any mention of #QAnon. So the tactic will be pitting the #Anons against each other, using #mediamatters in a coordination with the #MSM. #FakeNews

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.
#Bot #TwitterBots
the 1st "set" of bots is very similar to the elon musk cryptocurrency scammer bots that are running wild on twitter.
they are retweeting everything this account tweets:

Everyone's heard of #FakeNews. Before it was called fake news, it was called #disinformation. The goal is to cause confusion and chaos, so people don't know who to trust or what to believe. THREAD 1 #RussianCollaborators #Propaganda #FridayFeeling #FridayMotivation
Disinformation promotes so much misleading & false info that people lose faith, give up. Disinformation is designed to weaken the enemy by discrediting it with lies and "leaks" of damaging "info". Hint: the enemy is us, the resistance. 2 washingtonpost.com/news/worldview…
Joseph #Stalin is credited with inventing the term "dezinformatsiya", defined in the Great Soviet Encyclopedia as "dissemination (in the press, on the radio, etc.) of false reports intended to mislead public opinion". 3 #ColdWar #Propaganda #Lies #misinformation
