We’ve been monitoring US Twitter trends since shortly before the fourth #DemocraticDebate (October 15th.) With ~3 weeks of data on hand, we started looking for signs of inorganic amplification in early traffic for trending hashtags.

@ZellaQuixote This table shows the US trending hashtags with the highest percentage of automated tweets in traffic immediately prior to the hashtag in question trending. They are commercial/promotional rather than political. Hootsuite and Tweetdeck appear to be the tools of choice.
@ZellaQuixote #TestimonialTuesday, the bottiest of the trending hashtags with 65.7% of early tweets posted via automation tools, is fairly representative. It’s mostly business accounts tweeting and replying to positive customer reviews.

A thread list of Dancing With The Stars folks u can push to take a stand against #DWTS' casting Trump propagandist and Holocaust denier Sean Spicer #DWTSNoSeanSpicer #BoycottDWTS

1) Host @Tom_Bergeron, who already spoke out, and even with his weak statement, did more than most.
@Tom_Bergeron Here's @Tom_Bergeron weak ass statement which I'll still celebrate because he took risk to do it, and he did more than any other and did it first.

@Tom_Bergeron 2) Reach @vanderjames who is reliably progressive outwardly, but stopped tweeting on July 24th. Maybe when he contract with #DWTS was signed? Ask if he'll show up for his ideals or work with Trump propagandist and Holocaust denier Sean Spicer #DWTSNoSeanSpicer

Karey Burke, the head of ABC, must be jealous of how much NBC made rehabilitating local NYC criminal Trump into the White House.

With their own stunt, holocaust denier and child in cage defender, Sean Spicer for #DWTS, her bottom line is only $ and to hell with siding with evil.
Then @RobertIger, head of ABC's owner, Disney, like Burke - is laughing all the way to the bank hoping this controversy further engulfs the country and its most vulnerable people in flames.

Fuck you both. #DWTS #DWTSNoSeanSpicer
@RobertIger Trump demanded an apology from @RobertIger and it seems like when Trump tells Bob to jump, Bob is now taught to say how high Mr. Chosen One by green lighting Trump's disgraced propagandist to one of their flagship shows.…

@realDonaldTrump @1100Penn President Trump’s D.C. hotel had so many customers at a networking event for lobbyists last night, that when the hotel's boss went to boast about his “#success” on Twitter, panorama mode was required to show all the patrons.

@realDonaldTrump @1100Penn Russian-funded RT America personalities celebrated “great things” at the Trump Hotel DC. It’s unclear if they were referring to the ease w/which staffers for foreign gov't-funded media can get cash to the U.S. president or something else.

@realDonaldTrump @1100Penn If Eric Trump is no longer involved in his charity, why does this golfer—who just played in a benefit for it—call it "the Eric Trump Foundation"? [H/T @npenzenstadler]

It’s May, which means it’s also Asian American & Pacific Island Heritage Month. This is the @TwitterMoments I compiled from my tweets last May. #AAPIHM #AAPI…
Another May, another daily thread to celebrate #AAPIHM. Sessue Hayakawa, silent film star & Hollywood’s first sex symbol, partied with Fairbanks, launched Valentino’s career, fought in the French Resistance, & played COL Saito in Bridge on the River Kwai.…
One of my favorite authors today for the #AAPIHM thread. @AmyTan’s Joy Luck Club, which I first read 30 years ago, showed me that fiction need not be full of white people’s stories. She showed the world that our stories mattered.
