Bots don't spread fake news on Twitter, people do, say MIT eggheads

Whats the point to this experiment?

Lies are always more interesting than the truth.

Generally that is why they were written, to cause some affect, so are going to be written more sensational style.

Rather than looking at the reach of truth and lies, they should have looked at the STYLE of the various posts.

I bet the vast majority of "lies" are more interesting to read than the boring truth.....

The wages of sin are high, and the uniforms are better
