Half Of Tweets To 'Reopen America' May Be From Bots

According to Business Insider reports there's a big surge in bot activity on Twitter, when it comes to the topic of reopening America after the COVID-19 lockdown.

Carnegie Mellon researchers analyzed over 200 million tweets discussing COVID-19, and found that about half of them are likely bots.

Researchers say that bots fueled tweets usually come from accounts that tweet more frequently than humanly possible.
