I'm not really all that mysterious


I thought “Berniebot” was just a pejorative term for Sanders supporters (akin to “Obamabot” in the 2008 election without the definite racial component.)

But it really looks like there are bots spamming totally random threads with anti-Clinton propaganda and making it look like its coming from a Sanders supporter, and I’m left to wonder whether this (1) was actually deployed by a sincere but horrifically misguided Sanders supporter (2) is a Clinton-camp psyops campaign to make people hate Sanders and his supporters (3) is a Republican psyops campaign to make people hate Democrats.
