robleathern Controversial take: it may be more laborious for operators to create 10 fresh gmail accounts than obtain 10 working credit cards. #jsrailton

Once upon a Twitter:
Bot operators used complex & costly engagement farming to try & get seen amidst more engaging content.

Usually the cat & mouse game failed.

Today:
$8/month per bot account = guaranteed exposure at the top of replies.

Much better deal. #jsrailton

Remember: AI bots on Twitter are the dumbest they will ever be today.

They will only grow more sophisticated. #jsrailton

As blue check bot networks spray AI-generated comments at popular posts & rapturously boost each other, Twitter's current design gives them pride of place.

We are all stuck watching as they farm engagement & are matured for their ultimate purpose. #jsrailton

Today's bot networks are writing essays & odes to each other...

It's unsettling.

Just as many predicted, LLMs made it super easy to make everything look human-ish.

Gone are the days of bad grammar and copypastas. #jsrailton

It's easy to find blue-check AI... responding to AI.... everywhere.

Like these bots posting random LLM generated essays.

And then other bots chiming in with AI generated comments. #jsrailton

Thanks to a funny reply baiting bots, others have already shown up in my replies.

So, lets continue the experiment:

Any bots here want to help me:
Recover my crypto wallet?
Get instagram followers?
Help with metamask?
Recover my facebook?
Recommend crypto coins? #jsrailton

Recall the original argument: monthly payment would price-out bots.

But think for a second about the perverse incentive for a platform struggling with revenue targets:

OK, so they are bots, but do we really want to proactively find & cull large swaths of paying accounts? #jsrailton

Folks asking: what's the point of mobs of bot nonsense?

Maybe testing? Maybe bad programming. Maybe it doesn't matter.

Because the *takeaway* is that obviously inauthentic networks are not getting spotted & taken down.

Just zombies responding to zombies. I love chrismohney's take.

And when you do actually read a real popular post, you feel blue check bot accounts gumming up any possibility of actual conversation with generated garbage.

What a death spiral.

Twitter's AI bot problem:

Pic 1: spam account posts AI-generated *description* of an image without the image.

Pics 2-4
Swarms of blue-check verified bots reply with equally generated replies complimenting the nonexistent image.

Global censorship in action.

And all of it to hide the misdeeds of a hack-for-hire firm.

5/ Exactly this. 👇

We are collectively less secure.

And that includes governments.

When players like NSO proliferate the capability to become an advanced persistent threat to customers around the world.

4/ NSO Group is again trying to rebrand as the 'good guys.'

And splashing out big on lobbying spend.

But latest double-helping of abuses, documented up to Fall 2023 should leave nobody fooled about the nature of their business.

Unfortunately, the cases we collectively found are likely only the tip of this messy hack-berg.

Including 🇺🇸US Citizen adamcoogle from hrw.

2/ Putin's illegal invasion of #Ukraine triggered an exodus of artists, musicians & intellectuals.

This clearly drives the Kremlin nuts.

So they rely on friendly regimes & international machinations to try and bring them back home.

And chill the rest.

Meet Bi-2: some of the most popular rockers since the end of the USSR.

They're critical of the war & Putin is a snowflake.

So, Thai authorities arrested them & they face deportation to Russia.

Where they'll surely be punished for their words.

Shameful.

"Perhaps Howard Stern said it best: 'The oddity is, the people Trump despises most love him the most.'

" 'The people who are voting for Trump for the most part...he'd be disgusted by them.'

"The tragedy is that they're not disgusted by him in return." #JohnJHarwood
