Is Barack Obama spamming Twitter to create fake support for gun control legislation?
Is Barack Obama spamming Twitter in order to make it seem as though there is more support for gun control legislation than there really is? That is what at least one Republican thinks who did a little digging into pro-gun control Tweets which came his way recently.
Obama’s anti-gun campaign is a fraud,” Stockman said. “Obama’s supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress,” he added. “I call upon the president to denounce this phony spam campaign.
He claims that most of the Tweets are coming from spambots and some of the Tweeters only follow one person and that person happens to be Barack Obama’s former digital strategist–a coincidence?
To be fair, Steve Stockman only received 16 pro-gun control Tweets so this seems to be a small level attempt at best to gain support for gun control, but the mere fact that he received so few Tweets is proof that support is not as widely spread as Barack Obama would have us believe.
There is only one man who decided to look into this so it makes you wonder just how widespread this attempt at spreading propaganda really is.
