The Role of Fake Bot Traffic on Twitter/X | Alex Kriel

Who benefits from the fake traffic on X? It certainly doesn't benefit all users and is targeted at certain messages and certain individuals. By amplifying those accounts, the rest are effectively censored by being buried under the fake traffic.

Alex Kriel of Thinking Coalition talks about the role of fake bot traffic on Twitter/X and looks into where fake traffic comes from, who benefits from it and how to spot it.

Alex has a degree in theoretical physics and an MBA. He worked for many years in investment management focusing on corporate governance, his last role was with one of the world’s largest asset managers in Amsterdam. Alex was one of the first people to demonstrate that the Imperial Covid model assumptions were overstated and warned about the negative impacts of lockdowns.
He formed a working group, Thinking Coalition, to present data and evidence to challenge government overreach and arranged interviews with important scientists and thinkers like Professor Bhakdi, Professor Fenton, Dr. Sidley and others in 2021. He has also contributed to The Daily Sceptic and The Conservative Woman.

Thinking Coalition is a pro-liberty, anti-totalitarianism organisation concerned with government overreach. Much of their work springs from the Covid response of early 2020 when they suspected the Coronavirus outbreak had been hijacked to implement an altogether different agenda.
