    Trolls and bots are still active on Twitter

    “Trolls and bots are still active on Twitter trying to deceive us. They’re even using the current family separation & immigration debate to sow discord among Americans,” Sen. James Lankford, Oklahoma Republican, said on Twitter.

    He added: “It is important for social media companies to expose it so everyone knows what is fake.”

    He linked to a Wall Street Journal report that detailed ongoing Russian efforts to troll hot-button issues in U.S. politics such as comic Roseanne Barr.

    Mr. Lankford’s office declined to share the tweets that spurred his new warning.

    A congressional source said the intelligence community and Facebook and Twitter are aware of the controversial posts in question.

    Twitter declined to comment on Mr. Lankford’s tweet but said in a statement that it “takes proactive measures to promote healthy conversations and to combat abuse and manipulation on our platform.”

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    “Moral precepts are constant through the ages and not obedient to circumstances.”

    No one knows any more about Bot and trolls than the forum users at SoMd.com.
    We have our own variety--that cannot see the forest for the tree's.
