For those who asked: here are a few more graphs. One important point: they're not always easy to interpret. @ callouts to famous people (e.g. @realdonaldtrump, @pontifex, @hillaryclinton), get them incorporated into the graph, even though they're not really involved. 1/
Graph 1: Biggest thread from July 11 (the @jacobawohl one from Friday was #2.) More a dogwhistle/distortion than straight misinformation: Pope pushes "New World Order" ideology & open borders. @amike4761 is main actor here. Note inclusion of @pontifex.… 2/
Graph 2: Biggest thread from July 14. Again, a dogwhistle/distortion; claim of media blackout w/r/t murder by "illegal immigrant." @jacobawohl is at the center of the universe. On zoom, you can see @nancipelosi, @senschumer, @cnn getting callouts.… 3/
Graph 3: #2 thread from July 14. Outright misinformation & dogwhistle: Bishop claims that George Soros is paying off Catholic church officials. In this case, @cs0058sc and @sheckyi are big spreaders.… 4/
So... the data seem to show that @jacobawohl has, indeed, been a busy little beaver spreading misinformation and blowing dogwhistles. And there are plenty of others out there doing the same without his help. 5/5
