I've seen a lot of these Twitter post collages lately where the same message put out by one blue checkmark is echoed by a ton of bots simultaneously to make it look like the message is going organically viral when it isn’t. This is clearly fake, orchestrated to proliferate a message quickly in order to influence the zeitgeist/aggregate consciouness in a certain direction.
The people on one side see it for what it is - propaganda spread through repetitive messaging - while the people on the other always try to shrug it off or discredit it or gaslight and/or ridicule the people pointing it out… which makes me suspicious that many of those people are complicit, waiting for someone to pounce on who propels the opposite narrative, just like the bots who are putting this out in the first place.

This tactic with the bots functioning in concert with the naysayers on two teams converging on the monkey in the middle is meant to look so coincidental you wouldn't even notice that they're working in tandem.
Let’s make sure you know how to spot these tactics. I suggest you learn to identify the following list of confidence tricks in order to keep yourselves safe.
