If advanced AI (beyond basic bots) hasn’t been applied to manipulate social media, it won’t be long before it is— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) 1569477335000
These bots manipulate social media users in the form of fake followers, thousands of retweets, and eventually aiding in the spread of misinformation.
