New tool can spot fake Twitter accounts

A new tool Bot or Not have been developed by Indiana university with more than 1000 features Researchers have developed a tool that can determine whether a Twitter account is operated by a human or an automated software application known as a social bot. We have applied a statistical learning framework to analyze Twitter data, but the ‘secret sauce’ is in the set of more than one thousand predictive features able to discriminate between human users and social bots, based on content and timing of their tweets, and the structure of their networks,” said chief professor of the project.
