  author={S. Rajtmajer and Ashish Simhachalam and Thomas Zhao and Brady Bickel and Christopher Griffin},
We study Twitter data from a dynamical systems perspective. In particular, we focus on the large set of data released by Twitter Inc. and asserted to represent a Russian influence operation. We propose a mathematical model to describe the per-day tweet production that can be extracted using spectral analysis. We show that this mathematical model allows us to construct families (clusters) of users with common harmonics. We define a labeling scheme describing user strategy in an information… Expand
