Russian Bots vs. the Gun Debate

Guess what? Russian social media bots are at it again. Even after the big FBI reveal last week, their obviously isn’t enough fear of retribution to scare them off. Seems Russian bots on twitter began using the trending #Parklandshooting to spread false information and stoke tensions, attempting to sway Americans from rational thought and debate. Some bots claimed that the shooter searched for Arabic phrases on Google, while other bots used the hashtag #falseflag, implying that the United States had sponsored the attack to ultimately take guns away from Americans. The guys are getting smarter and programming the bots to fit certain patterns in their attempt to create doubt about the government, police, and media.
