Sen. Klobuchar: Fining social media for bots is a ‘great idea’ – NBC News

For the last couple of weeks I have been asking Twitter support questions regarding Bots. One question I asked is would they Institute a message to verify that individuals are real people and not butts. I also asked them how is an individual supposed to know if they’re dealing with a bot or real person on Twitter. My queries have been met by silence. I get their automated response that says thank you for your feedback so on and so on and so on. As I’ve made it quite clear I have deactivated my Facebook account. So my only social media platform is Twitter. Twitter is afraid to remove all the Box because there total user ship will fall drastically. I have noticed in the last few weeks the number of people I am following has been falling. Not by a lot but I would say between 5 to 10 a week. This idea by senator Amy Klobuchar to find the social media platforms for not looking for Bots is genius. I have asked to have my account verified by Twitter and from their guidelines I met all of the requirements but they said no. So I don’t have a lot of choices at this point other than to opt out of Twitter. Honestly, the amount of traffic that comes to this blog from Twitter and always has been. I did get a large hit when I deactivated my Facebook account but I have joined a company called BlogPros and they have helped my numbers go back up.

Social media has created this problem and they need to fix it.
