Are a lot of people from Chile joining Mastodon today?
@Gargron yeah, most people from Chile are coming here after local independent news account @PiensaPrensaOficial was deleted (but later reinstated) by Twitter after some alt-right accounts denounced them.
@Caribu @Gargron @PiensaPrensaOficial That account on mastodon.social isn't managed by the president of chile though, right?
@pinkprius @Gargron @PiensaPrensaOficial Gosh I hope not.
@pinkprius @Caribu @Gargron @PiensaPrensaOficial right
@Caribu @Gargron @PiensaPrensaOficial
I knew the birdsite was out of control with the bots manipulating reporting algorythms, but a news account? Insane!
@IronMan Looks like it's not just us!
@AgentCarter_SSR @Gargron @PiensaPrensaOficial @IronMan unfortunately, bot accounts used for fake news spreading are quite common here in Chile and mostly created by supporters of an alt-right political party and vocal supporters of Pinochet and his Dictatorship
@CaribuIt's been a growing problem here, as well.
I don't think most people are understanding how grave it can become here. @AgentCarter_SSR @Gargron @PiensaPrensaOficial
@IronManThey don't. @Caribu @AgentCarter_SSR @Gargron @PiensaPrensaOficial
