Now that the pool of contenders seems to have stabilized for the moment, we decided to reanalyze the accounts retweeting each of 23 Democratic candidates. Time range considered: May 31st - June 10th, 2019.

First, some overall statistics. The number of accounts retweeting each candidate departs from recent polling in one significant way: @JoeBiden is well behind @BernieSanders, @ewarren, @KamalaHarris (and others) in terms of Twitter amplification.

We didn't find much automation.
Media websites most frequently linked by accounts retweeting each candidate. Layout indicates the degree of similarity between the media diets of each group - candidates whose pie charts are closer together have audiences sharing similar sets of news sources.
The accounts retweeting most of the candidates link similar stuff - a mix of center and left-leaning MSM. Notable exceptions:

@TulsiGabbard - Russia Today is #1 (Sputnik turns up too)
@AndrewYang - lots of Reddit
@JohnDelaney - some far-right sources (Breitbart, Gateway Pundit)
Same concept with the hashtags used by the accounts retweeting each candidate. In addition to hashtags boosting individual candidates, impeachment and #MuellerReport-related hashtags turn up frequently. Let's look at a few of the outliers. . .
Accounts retweeting @BillDeBlasio seem quite fond of #Brexit hashtags (#StopBrexit and #PeoplesVote show up as well.) The amplifiers of both @MikeGravel and @TulsiGabbard show a heavy focus on Assange/Wikileaks-related hashtags such as #FreeAssange.
Who else do the accounts retweeting the Democratic candidates retweet? @AOC is a favorite across the board. They also generally retweet other candidates, journalists, and left-wing activists. @justinamash is the most common Republican account retweeted.
Amplifiers of @AndrewYang and @JohnDelaney also retweet a plethora of far-right accounts such as @JackPosobiec and @charliekirk11. @TulsiGabbard's retweeters likewise amplify Posobiec, as well as @ggreenwald, @MaxBlumenthal, @RT_com, and noted copyright fugitive @KimDotcom.
Network of number of retweeters in common between each pair of candidates. The four largest nodes (Sanders, Warren, Harris, and Buttigieg) have a lot of overlap. Gabbard and Gravel mostly share amplifiers with each other (and Sanders, but they receive far fewer RTs than he does.)
Also, @AndrewYang is an outlier in that he shares very few retweeters with any of the other accounts relative to the number of accounts amplifying him.
