How Twitter Bots Use Psychology to Fool You - SciShow Pysch

Although bots on social media are a known thing, the cognitive effect of it isn't reported often. In 2018 "Twitter" admitted that more than 50,000 Russia-linked accounts used the platform to post automated material about the 2016 US election, manipulating discourse to either confuse and derail discussions or promote Donald Trump as a preferable president."[1]

In Australia, during the COVID-19/Pandemic, a Carnegie Mellon study found that almost half of the Twitter accounts calling for an end to lockdown orders were likely bots. Looking at more than 200 million tweets that referenced COVID-19, it found that 82 per cent of the top 50 retweeters were bots.[2]


77th Brigade

Twitter’s ‘head of editorial’ for Middle East is officer in a UK Army propaganda unit the 77th Brigade. Gordon MacMillan has been working at Twitter for since 2012 and has been its Head of Editorial, Europe, the Middle East and Africa since July 2016.

A spokesman from Twitter told The Independent that it was an “open, neutral, and independent service” and that a review of Mr MacMillan’s service as an army reserve psychological warfare volunteer had found no violation of its policies.[3]

Nick Pacilio

Nick Pacilio, per 2021 the senior communications manager for Twitter, was Vice President Kamala Harris' previous press secretary from 2011-14, while Harris was the attorney general of California, [4], and announced the removal of Trump Tweets[5].

A fascinating fact check by Microsoft-owned MSN created the impression in its headline and article that this connection is untrue. Out of the many social media accounts talking of this, they picked a Facebook post to debunk that somewhat imprecisely claimed "Kamela Harris' press secretary is the chief of communications at Twitter. Let that sink in"[6], The MSN 'fact-check' focuses on the word "current", and states "the claim that Harris' press secretary is the senior communications manager of Twitter is FALSE, based on our research. There is no evidence that her current press secretary, Sabrina Singh, was ever employed by Twitter.[7], while the same article in an example of doublespeak correctly confirms the core of the claim, "Harris' former press secretary now works at Twitter; he became an employee there after working for Harris."

Ray Blanchard, a psychologist and leading researcher on transgender people is blocked after tweets in which he expressed his core beliefs about Transgenderism.[8][9][10]

In 2016 Craig Murray was "ghost banned" by Twitter, resulting in a 90% decrease in traffic to his site from that site.[11] Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, reported in 2017 that he had been "shadowbanned" because of his writings about Donald Trump.[12] Twitter was an active participant in the COVID-19 censorship, and in August 2020 it began censoring all links to BitChute videos.[13]

Twitter Files

In 2022, journalists and Elon Musk released some files indicating a conspiracy of intelligence agencies and certain politicians to censor info on Twitter.

Disinformation and misinformation

Integrity Initiative Moncloa campaign.jpg

Documents leaked in 2018 suggested that the Integrity Initiative was using "clusters" of journalists to try to promote Russophobia[14] and also to smear Jeremy Corbyn.[15]

In August 2021, they will test out a "report function" to prevent "misinformation".[16]

Quotes by X

Elon Musk“Next I’m buying Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in”2022
Elon Musk“Extremely big difference between died because of or died with. Also, did the person actually have C19 or did they just have C19 symptoms? It’s almost impossible to die without feeling weakness, shortness of breath or other C19 symptoms, unless you were crushed by a falling piano.”2020
Elon Musk“If Putin could so easily humiliate the West, then he would accept the challenge [to fight me]. But he will not.”2022
Elon Musk“There is considerable conflation of diagnosis & contraction of “corona”. Actual virality is much lower than it would seem. I think this will turn out to be comparable to other forms of influenza. World War Z it is not”2020
Elon Musk“Nuke Mars!”2019
Elon Musk“Seems like an opportune moment to bring up the Fermi Paradox, aka 'Where are the aliens?' Really odd that we see no sign of them. Btw, please don't mention the pyramids. Stacking stone blocks is not evidence of an advanced civilization. The rumor that I'm building a spaceship to get back to my home planet Mars is totally untrue. The ancient Egyptians were amazing, but if aliens built the pyramids, they would've left behind a computer or something”2015

Document:Women's March petitions Jack Dorsey to ban Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Twitter“Twitter is not in charge of what information is correct and what information is not correct. Twitter is declaring itself the judge of whose voice is right and whose voice is wrong”Marjorie Taylor GreeneAugust 2021
Saagar Enjeti@jack was the last of the tech CEOS who at least on a personal level was committed to free speech. His departure is probably going to make Twitter a lot worse for censorship (which is truly saying something)”Saagar Enjeti29 November 2021
Norman Fenton“Note that we have no issue with the contents of either of these posts, nor do we know anything objectionable about the posters themselves. The only point we wish to make is that neither has been censored on X for posting on topics we are currently censored for.
But there is another perhaps more uncomfortable possible conclusion we might arrive at. That dissent from particular individuals or groups is positively allowed or even approved on X, whilst that from others, such as us, is not. Hence it not the message but the source of the message, or the timing of the message, that is being censored. Hence who gets to tell you the 'vaccines are bad' might matter to Elon Musk and X, much more than the actual message imparted.
In this way X appears to be no different from MSM: politics, influence and money may hold sway to varying extents. And this determines what messages people see, when and by whom.”
Norman Fenton

Bill Gates“He actually could make it worse. That’s not his track record. His track record with Tesla and Space X is pretty mind-blowing at putting together a great team of engineers and taking people who work in those fields in a less bold way and really showing them up. I kind of doubt that’ll happen this time but we should have an open mind and never underestimate Elon. What’s his goal? Where he talks about the openness, how does he feel about something that says ‘vaccines kill people’ or ‘Bill Gates is tracking people’ – is that one of the things he thinks should be spread?”Bill Gates2022
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador“Yes, social media should not be used to incite violence and all that, but this cannot be used as a pretext to suspend freedom of expression. How can a company act as if it was all powerful, omnipotent, as a sort of Spanish Inquisition on what is expressed?”Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador14 January 2021
PewDiePie ADL controversy“Reinstalled Twitter to talk about PewDiePie's betrayal by donating 50k to the ADL. The company working with places like Twitter to get rid of anything "Offensive" @pewdiepie

You just supported a group that even ruined even YOUR deal to Disney. Wtf?

PewDiePie literally paid $50,000 to not be called racist anymore. And in turn- he just got so many people in the future censored off of places like Twitter and YouTube.

Anytime someone gets banned for now on, I'll be sure to say

"Thanks Pewdiepie"”
Brittany Venti11 September 2019
Platformization“The much loved upstart that gains network effects by managing incentives across the ecosystem loses its benevolent streak as its power increases. This may take many different forms. Amazon, for example, often uses its platform’s data to determine which product lines to get into; eventually it outperforms the merchants who were doing well with those products. Twitter, likewise, has repeatedly changed policies to work against the ecosystem. A recent example saw Twitter pushing live streaming service Meerkat off the platform after acquiring its competitor, Periscope.”Sangeet Paul Choudary8 May 2017
Joy Reid“Essentially, she made public her own vaccine deliberation, which according to trusted friends is a better way to describe vaccine hesitancy, which by the way is not the same thing as refusal. By doing, Nicki also used her social media platform and her 22 million Twitter followers to cast doubt on the vaccine to a heavily Black audience”Joy Reid14 September 2021
