More MSNBC spambots found for Ed Schultz and Morning Joe Scarborough
While not as blatant, and big breasted as Rachel Maddow’s spambot attack to try and get her show trending on Twitter, Twitchy has discovered that Ed Schultz and Morning Joe Scarborough also seem to have a brigade of spambots on Twitter trying to promote their shows, posting identical quotes amongst each bot.
Twitchy looked at about a dozen of these accounts and noted some common characteristics. First, most (not all) have small numbers of tweets and small numbers of followers, suggesting that they probably are not bona fide Twitter users.
Second, most (not all) of the profiles link to a service called Followers Delivery. The service claims to sell 100,000 Twitter followers for $320. It also sells Facebook likes and YouTube views.
