    it's terrifying to see our tactics and tools put to work in the political arena, with the kind of big bucks that lobbyists get.

    I've actually been wanting to reverse engineer the Kony 2012 campaign. That campaign is a fucking masterpiece, and was definitely guided using some of these bots, and all other means of controlling popular opinion. I just need to sit down and do it. I know it would be enlightening

    the kony 2012 campaign was VERY well funded
    soros has a small fortune invested in uganda
    and kony is messing it up for him
    it was funded by an angry billionaire that could stand to lose millions if kony isn't brought down
    so it probably had a budget of over 500k
    here's how good it was...
    he astroturfed a grassroots campaign,
    the only people in the org that knew what was really up were probably the heads of the company
    (they were obviously of loose morals, ceo was caught high on ex in public jerkin the gherkin)
    they most likely utilized something like this
