Latest bot-run, fake news source is: A. Reddit; B. Fark; C. Twitter NYTimes headline: "How Twitter Is Being Gamed to Feed Misinformation" by Farhad Manjoo, Senior Editor, journalist, author FTFA: "... Twitter is making the news dumber. The service is insidery and clubby. It exacerbates groupthink. It prizes pundit-ready quips over substantive debate, and it tends to elevate the silly over the serious ... [and] its role in the production and dissemination of propaganda and misinformation" "One way to think of today's disinformation ecosystem is to picture it as a kind of gastrointestinal tract. At the top end -- the mouth, let's call it -- enter the raw materials of propaganda ... Then, way down at what we will politely call the "other end," emerge the packaged narratives primed for widespread dissemination" >Twitter has become a place where many journalists unconsciously build and gut-check a worldview -- where they develop a sense of what's important and merits coverage and what doesn't. This makes Twitter a prime target for manipulators: If you can get something big on Twitter, you?re almost guaranteed coverage everywhere >>a single Twitter user can create lots of accounts and run them all in a coordinated way QUOTE: Alice Marwick, co-author of a recent report on the mechanics of media manipulation for the Data & Society Research Institute "When journalists see a story getting big on Twitter, they consider it a kind of responsibility to cover it ... if they don't, they may get accused of bias" >>>numerous cheap and easy-to-use online tools let people quickly create thousands of Twitter bots -- accounts that look real, but that are controlled by a puppet master >>>>If Facebook's primary danger is its dissemination of fake stories, then Twitter's is a ginning up of fake people QUOTE: Samuel Woolley, director for research, Oxford University's Computational Propaganda Project "[Twitter is] doing something that I call 'manufacturing consensus,' or building the illusion of popularity for a candidate or a particular idea" >>>>>Bots flood the network, tweeting and retweeting thousands or hundreds of thousands of messages in support of the story, often accompanied by a branding hashtag >>>>>>The initial aim isn't to convince or persuade but simply to overwhelm -- to so completely saturate the network that it seems as if people are talking about a particular story The biggest prize is to get on Twitter's Trending Topics list which is often used as an assignment sheet for the rest of the internet >>>>>>>bots give us an easy way to doubt everything we see online ... the rise of bots might soon allow us to dismiss any online enthusiasm as driven by automation QUOTE: Renee DiResta, a technologist who studies bots "If you can make something trend, you can almost make it come true ... And if that's the case, why believe anything?" QUOTE: "Human users didn't do a good job of separating bots from other humans" Emilio Ferrara researcher (along with Alessandro Bessi), University of Southern California found that about a fifth of the election-related conversation on Twitter last year was generated by bots http://firstmonday.org/ojs/index.php/fm/article/view/7090/5653 https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/31/technology/how-twitter-is-being-gamed-to-feed-misinformation.html view-source:http://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/31/technology/how-twitter-is-being-gamed-to-feed-misinformation.html prop] {{}}
