i grabbed the tweet IDs for 5/22/2017 - 5/16/2017
not that many.
doing that gives me about 125k tweets to look at.
luckily the russians made this easy, they had their twitter UI set to "ru".
2 of them look suspect
random alphanumeric screen names and women's first+last name for the account name.
so i pull the 2 accounts timelines
all the bots do is retweet.
so what you want is a list of tweet ids of the things they retweeted.
in my case it's about a 1000 total tweets to check.
checking the retweets on those returns about 400k results.
or about 360K unique accounts.
regular twitter data looks like this: all the accounts created on 6/9 but have a gradually increasing status count
all created the same day, all have a similar name style, all of them have similar stats.
these are russian bots with their UI set to english.
Google sheet spreadsheet here with accounts and urls.
i can only put 1000 a day on a list, will add the rest tomorrow.
Bringing the total to 2,187.
most created mid 2017.
some of them created 4-5 days ago.
