We decided to repeat this analysis to see what (if anything) has changed with #WalkAway traffic since July. The volume has decreased, for one: a 200000 tweets sample now covers a span of 64 hours rather than 18.
Let's repeat this test on the new dataset - we'll compare 216K tweets from 2018 from accounts with recent (Oct 9 - 11) #WalkAway tweets with 216K tweets from the same accounts from the five previous years. We'll look at both hashtag use and media sources.
Much like when we tested this in early July, the hashtag use of the #WalkAway accounts indicates that the vast majority have always been conservative. They may be attempting to encourage others to "walk away", but they don't seem to have walked away themselves.
We see a similar pattern with the news sites linked by the #WalkAway accounts. They've always preferred right-wing sources, and the more conspiracy-oriented sites eclipse the mainstream sites such as Fox in terms of total volume.
