ABSTRACT
From politicians and nation states to terrorist groups, numerous organizations reportedly conduct explicit campaigns to influence opinions on social media, posing a risk to freedom of expression. Thus, there is a need to identify and eliminate "influence bots"--realistic, automated identities that illicitly shape discussions on sites like Twitter and Facebook--before they get too influential.
