• Tony Khan Explains His Theory Of Bots Spreading Hate Against AEW
Yesterday, AEW President Tony Khan implied that WWE is spending money on bots to spread hate against All Elite Wrestling on Social Media.
Below is what he tweeted:
“An independent study has confirmed that much of the staunch anti-AEW online community aren’t real individuals, it’s a staff running thousands of accounts + an army of bots to signal boost them.
Look closely, these aren’t real people. Who’d pay for such a *wildly* expensive thing?
Ever wonder why so much of the activity of these accounts is retweets and replies? Like who actually has 80% of their activity as straight up retweets?
Research this one yourselves. You internet detectives thrive in these situations.
Their boiler room staff is going to be working overtime on a Friday, and I love it!”
A user then replied:
“‘Their boiler room staff’ gonna tell everyone not to watch Rampage also? I guess that’s the reason it only gets 400K.”
Former RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch mocked Tony by tweeting the following:
“An independent study confirmed that much of the staunch anti – Becky in arena booers aren’t real individuals, it’s a staff running thousands of A.I. – an army of bots! Look closely, these aren’t real people. Who’d pay for such a ‘wildly’ expensive thing?”
Tony later issued the following statement to Wrestlinginc to explain his situation in detail:
“Waiting for final study but here’s what my expert confirmed. It’s people with real live accounts making posts and then using their bots to manipulate the social channel algorithm by backing them up with engagement from a made-up Twitter identity.
Social media teams will often fight on this. Bots are great for numbers and when they’re gone, you’ll see a dip in digital conversation impressions – both those were either negative sentiment or not real anyway.
For example, I tweet Megha only eats rotten bananas. I throw say 18 bots behind it (which takes about 5 minutes to do), Twitter security can’t differentiate when done well (neither can most social teams).
The problem becomes, every time people type Megha into the search bar, because of a real account supported by bots – the first suggested result would be tweets about Megha eating rotten bananas.
I’m oversimplifying, but that’s the 5 cent version of what’s happening.”
