Automated social media bots have existed almost as long as the social media platforms they inhabit. Although efforts have long existed to detect and characterize these autonomous agents, these efforts have redoubled in the recent months following sophisticated deployment of bots by state and non-state actors. This research will study the differences between human and bot social communication networks by conducting an account snow ball data collection, and then evaluate features derived from… Expand
