Retweet network for tweets about the rally. Actually, there are (as of the time we pulled the data) two disconnected networks; one centered on @gatewaypundit promoting the rally and one comprised of accounts critical of the rally.
Who tweeted about the #WeBuildTheWall rally first? Left-wing accounts actually beat supporters of the rally to the punch by 4 days. The first account promoting the rally is @gqforbes4, one of several automated accounts with identical early tweets linking gateway pundit's stream.
We tested the accounts tweeting about the rally for automation based on 24/7 activity/use of automation services. 15 of 1352 (1.1%) were flagged as bots. Although the percentage is low, the accounts are noteworthy due to being among the first to tweet about the topic. Also. . .
Here are the media sources most frequently linked by the 15 bots tweeting about Bannon & Clarke's #WeBuildTheWall rally. It's mostly a mix of GatewayPundit, obscure right-wing news sites with names matching the bots tweeting them, and clickbait URL shorteners with malware popups.
