According to a study by FGV/DAPP, about 20% of all political discussions on social networks in Brazil are instigated by bots. These malicious political bots impersonate real users in order to create an artificial engagement, commonly supported by fake news.
That’s why, by combining an algorithm with the Twitter Streaming API, Congresso em Foco – one of Brazil’s most influential political journals – developed a platform that people could use on a daily basis to follow and compare the candidates and political subjects most mentioned on Twitter by those bots, up to election day.
