Fair Warning: I am now seeing Russian bots in full force spreading a #Resist extremist Leftist agenda on social media--the same way they did with pro-Trump/neo-Nazi fake accounts. Be aware they are now shifting gears to rile up the Left. Don't fall for it.
The new anime, then Pepe the frog, is now NPC.
Once you identify one fake account, ie based on their grammar, using S in institutionalising (Americans use Z), their avatars are usually themed, and then you can look at their friends lists to identify the rest. Most are run by one person or a small team in a troll farm.
You can also look at their friends numbers. If they have many tweets and follow a lot of accounts, but only have a few followers themselves it's probably fake. Some use artificial intelligence to have simple convos too.
And all you have to do is look at the replies here to identify the bot trend. Wise up, folks. These Russian trolls will use every issue we face to divide us further.
