Antivaxers on Twitter: Fake news and Twitter bots
As well as noting 284 SocialBot profiles tweeting the hashtag #Vaccine, we also documented every hashtag used in conjunction with it. There are so many Wakefield groupies willing to use #wearevaxxed and #praybig to try to influence Twitter conversations. As a first pass, that probably sounds reasonable, but there are so many more major hashtags used by antivaxers. One of the most glaring traits of Twitter bots is the frequency with which they Tweet. Even if they aren't, it's hard not to conclude that antivaxers aren't using bots to promote their point of view.
