Just published: case study of some heavy-handed attempts to game Twitter in India in February.

Bots on both sides, but the attempt to boost the pro-Modi traffic was the craziest I've seen.

medium.com/dfrlab/electio…
We measured two hashtags using the Coefficient of Traffic Manipulation (CTM), and compared them with known traffic flows.

#GoBackModi was among the more heavily gamed hashtags.

#TNwelcomesModi was off the charts.

For the CTM, see comprop.oii.ox.ac.uk/wp-content/upl…

The CTM measures attempts by small groups to give traffic a disproportionate boost. Caveats:

1. It's comparative not absolute, so doesn't tell you "gamed / not gamed";
2. It's not just about spotting bots;
3. It shows attempts to manipulate traffic, not if they succeeded.

A keen follower of politics would realize that before every major election, political party leaders will announce big projects, big promises and lay foundation stones for many projects which they obviously forget after winning the elections!!! #Modi4NewIndia
But with @narendramodi it has been the complete opposite!!!
He is doing a record breaking inaugurations of various long pending projects or the projects that he initiated post 2014. #Modi4NewIndia
And he is doing all this before the Model Code of conduct kicks in.
In the last one month, @narendramodi has made 28 trips across India, launching an unprecedented 157 projects. This is sourced from the website of the Prime Minister's Office as well as official announcements.
