#NPC Twitter accounts: either bots or the most repetitive video game ever invented. . .
In recent days, a number of "#NPC" accounts that self-identify as #Resistance have emerged. We found this example while researching another project, and have also had various folks draw our attention to the phenomenon. Let's take a quick look. . .
The theme of the accounts is to portray those opposed to the present administration as "NPCs" (a term for non-player characters in games), likely in an attempt to imply that opponents are simply executing a script rather than stating a genuine position. #GamerGate

While this is probably a big 4chan joke ...I don't like to underestimate a disinfo campaign even if its a domestic 4chan trolling operation. Here is some #NPC background. I am also not one to suggest u put ur head in the sand & block these #infosec #opsec
As others have pointed out this appears to have developed much like Pepe the frog ...out of the 4chan netherworld of the internet. Reading the timeline of this fake account @BKrassenstein69 they are using to troll the real account @Krassenstein gives u the very racist flavor
Love the tool Hoaxy. Using it we were very quickly able to identify roughly 50 Twitter accounts all very related and most created this month. I am sure there are many more. #NPC #infosec #opsec
