The Sockpuppets Of Twitter

Rachel Maddow Busted Using Multiple Fake Twitter Accounts To Boost Mentions Of Her Show


I doubt it’s Maddow doing it. More likely this is a “social media PR firm” hired by MSNBC that’s behind it.

But this is all over Twitter. I use Twitter Search a lot. And I’ve come across well-known tech sites that assault Twitter with hundreds of sockpuppet tweets when a post goes live, all under accounts that exist only to blast through their message.

This is something that Twitter needs to stop.

    This was obviously fake. No one watches Rachael Maddow.

  3. What we have here is a lack of cool. Better to buy some ad space and do very weird and surreal ads that cause intrigue. Woman needs to be herself more and not follow the self-serving “rules” about promo put out by social media PR firms.
