Social Media: Bots Influencing Your Vote
Preface by TLB
We are well aware of the influence Mainstream Media attempts to have on our vote. Those who consistantly glean their reality only from what they see on the TV (MSM) are the most vulnerable, and the desired targets.
We know about skewed polls from the MSM and Social Media where the numbers, demographic and geographic data, is sampled and skewed to favor a specific candidate. But how many are aware of the massive intrusion into social media that has taken place to accomplish the same goals.
Bots are specialized pieces of computer code (programs) that can infiltrate computers, programs and social media platforms to preform specific programed functions. The are reactionary and perform stated specified functions depending on what information they discover.
There are potentially no limits to the ends these purveyors of tyranny will go to to rig a system that is based on sovereign citizens. Our only defense against this tyranny is the knowledge that it exists, and in what types of media … especially social media.

HOW SOCIAL MEDIA BOTS ARE SYSTEMATICALLY INFLUENCING VOTERS
Is it possible that there are bots on your social media feed that are influencing you to vote for a particular candidate? Researchers from California think it’s not only possible, it’s happening.
Computer science researchers at the University of Southern California made software to figure out during a on-month period how many tweets about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were generated by software instead of real people behind the screen.
“Looking at the content itself, but also the timing of the activity, the network structures, how information spreads from one account to another and so forth. Eventually we realized that about 15 percent of the accounts on the Twitter feed discussing elections in the U.S. are bots,” said research assistant professor Emilio Ferrara to KCBS news.
These bots are specifically programmed to influence how you vote, and it’s very likely that they have infiltrated your Facebook or Twitter feed.
If 15% of social media accounts are bots that are able to generate inestimable amounts of propaganda to assist a certain candidate, what more can these bots be doing to influence your mind?
