+ - Fake tweets sent on Malaysia independent day to shore up government->

Submitted by ksloke
ksloke (758607) writes "The 3.6 million tweets record seting claim sent to Malaysia's prime minister Najib Razak account on Malaysia's independence day are sent by twitter bots to create the illusion of massive support for the government of the day. Politweet.org observed that mentions of the official hashtag movement created for the event, #Merdeka55, had been generated at an unusual rate estimated at 720 tweets a minute with identical message. Quote:" Malaysian users of the micro-blogging service continued today to pour scorn over Information, Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim’s record-beating claim.""
