The spread of low-credibility content by social bots

Authors for this study published in Nature Communications also looked at the social risk of fake news and misinformation. After studying millions of messages on Twitter sent during a year, the authors found much of this information is spread by “bots” or fake accounts that automatically generate messages. The study suggests that eliminating bots from social media platforms could sharply curb the spread of fake news.
