Troll/bot alert! But who’s really behind them?

Last Updated: September 30, 2019By Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This Writer seems to have become a target for trolls (and/or bots) after two tweets in response to the BBC’s PoliticsLive show.

Here they are:

They triggered a multitude of responses from Twitter users who seemed unwilling to go by their real names, didn’t want to produce a photograph of themselves, weren’t interested in following many people and hadn’t accrued more than a handful of followers, despite having been around, in some cases, since 2011!

Some were extremely ill-mannered so I will not repeat them here.

Then I received this: “I call these trolls #borisbot. If you look back to the first tweets you’ll find there’s nothing political, just ordinary stuff. I guess either hacked or bought accounts, so who’s running them?”

How interesting!

Who shall we ask about that? Dominic Cummings?

Or Brandon ‘Tories hire army of tweeters to take social media fight to Labour’ Lewis?

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    The closer to the end of October expect much more interference as the greedy and ambitious Tories scramble to protect their own Political and Financial interests.
