I am a perpetual narcissist and sadist, so I spend part of my time searching Twitter and Google to see if people are saying nice or nasty things about my blog or things I have written.
Because of this perverse behaviour I now continually come across an assortment of bots who tweet about thorium. If you want to find these people simple search for “#thorium” on Twitter. And they seem to be busy with a quick throw away blog post of mine. Here are a few of these characters:
This is just a selection of the bots that swamp the #thorium hashtag. The “Thor” guy is particularly interesting. He also runs a few other bots. Among them is “Eco_Wife” above. Then there is @DogClimate, At one point there was also CatClimate and ClimatePup, but they seem to have been removed, perhaps by Twitter in response to complaints.
But the mystery remains. Is it one guy running 6 or 7 sock puppets or two guys running 3 or 4 each?
Have “Thor” and “Brendan” ever been seen in the same room?
