We took a quick look at the history of the #TrumpRally hashtag, incorporating both presently live tweets and tweets from the datasets of banned trolls Twitter has released into our dataset. 21351 of 303201 tweets (7%) appear automated based on apps used.

@ZellaQuixote The automated #TrumpRally traffic (21351 tweets from 6558 accounts) doesn't come from a single network. Smaller botnets do show up, such as this set of 25 accounts created on April 6th, 2018 that attaches the hashtag to bitcoin/advertising spam.
@ZellaQuixote Another smaller network, this one created on March 12th, 2016. The first tweet from each account contains #TrumpRally, again attached to non-sequitur spam. The remaining traffic looks like a mix of smaller networks/solo spam and newsbots.
@ZellaQuixote Who tweeted #TrumpRally first? This chart shows the first 30 accounts, including banned Internet Research Agency account @CathyTo47590555. (Overall, the banned Russian sets contributed 1097 tweets, RTs included, with a few from banned Iranian/Venezuelan accounts in the mix too.)
