Pro-Gun Russian Bots Flood Twitter After Parkland Shooting | WIRED
In the wake of Wednesday’s Parkland, Florida school shooting Russian bots have taken to Twitter to stoke the gun control debate.
Info-wars are well underway. It doesn't matter where you stand on guns, this isn't about that (though they do amplify one side), but look just how swiftly they're able to mobilize in an attempt to amplify division.
“Meanwhile, some accounts with large bot followings are already spreading misinformation about the shooter's ties to far-left group Antifa, even though the Associated Press reported that he was a member of a local white nationalist group.”
