A different type of spam is coming to you soon. It’ll look and sound like the real thing, but isn’t. 1/5th of tweets in the 2016 election were bots. 1/3rd of Brexit tweets. And now, we are getting towards the 2020 elections, and the digital world is more complex. This does not promise to be a fun election year.

They’re mouthpieces for foreign actors, domestic political groups, even the candidates themselves. And soon you won’t be able to tell they’re bots.
