While looking at the #GiletsJaunes hashtag I ran across 1300 what look to be Pro-#Erdogan #Turkish 🇹🇷 #bots
They older accounts using "twitter for ipad" to retweet.

#Turkey #wel

The bots are set to retweet some anti-#Soros tweets, stuff about #MBS ? and politics that I have no clue about.

I thought it was kinda interesting they used "Twitter for IPad" you don't get to see that very often, usually the bots are using the API or android emulators. Plus the accounts are older than typiGT2xe0sKVV
They seem to be setup to boost this accounts tweets:
twitter.com/medyaadami
twitter list of a 1000 of them
twitter.com/josh_emerson/l…
these are all suspended now, the accounts left on the list are probably false positives.
Found some more of these bots and so did @popular_vote16
They are still boosting tweets with the #GiletsJaunes hashtag.
looks like they are set to retweet twitter.com/medyaadami
.@Botometer results for one of the accounts
.@socialbearing analytics for one of the bots, all retweets, using IPads?
The #bots mostly RT #Erdogan , but then some #YellowVests related content.
analytics for another sample bot account.
This is the account they are set to RT that is using the #giletsjaunes hashtag.
analytics for the last 400 tweets for that account.
lots of #YellowVests and #GiletsJaunes content.
as usual spreadsheet with account info and clickable links to each account
