    Of course it is. It is noting down everyone's thought process and mapping out future potential conflict zones for the west.

    Yeah, lot of analysis goes into twitter.

    Early January the notorious speculator and confessed sponsor of the refugee traffic to Europe George Soros gave an explicitinterview to Wirtschafts Woche where he bitterly critisized Merkel’s stricter European and refugee policy suggesting that it would “cost her chancellorship”. Simultaneously the hashtag#ArrestMerkel and “Merkel Has To Go” motto appeared in Twitter and gained an impressive circulation. Conducted analysis showed that #ArrestMerkel hashtag was originally transmitted by two major Twitter accounts, @Trainspotter001 and @AmyMek. It was taken up and spread by a number of other powerful accounts.

    @Trainspotter001 and @AmyMek do not have any regional affiliation, but average hourly activity analisys brought the following results:

    As you see, in both cases the minimum activity is observed between 7AM and 3PM GMT , which most likely corresponds to the US Pacific or Mountain Time. These Twitter activists are therefore active during daytime on the US West coast.

    Now, the @Trainspotter001 account has made almost 27K tweets since March 2015, or around 88 tweets per day which too much for a human operator (for example, the whole CNN Twitter team is making around 23 tweets/day). We conclude that@Trainspotter001 is a programmed bot, while @Amy Mek (27K tweets since 2012) is likely too.

    Going further to major retweeters we see that @Genophilia is the leading bot here (107K tweets since September 2012, or approximately 87 tweets/day). Its region is not indicated but average hourly activity research shows that it is operated from the US Pacific coast as well. Two other notable accounts are@jjauthor, a Nevada-based bot making 300 posts per day since 2010 (!) and @LadyAodh, another artificial blonde profile, created in the Unites States and fighting “white genocide” since March 2015. As you saw at the first graph, all these bot accounts are closely interlaced and thus multiplicate each other’s effect coving multimillion audiences.

    The presented evidence clearly demonstrates that the wholeRefugee Combination was arranged by the US-based agents to frame up Chancellor Merkel and warn her against the defiance and independent stand for the European sovereignty. Quite noteworthy is that the seemingly polar opposite platforms (ultra liberal of George Soros and far right of vague US-located twitter bots) are eventually pursuing the same political goal – to oust German leader from her office and impose the TTIP on Europ

    Social media is a tool just like any other, it's effect depends on how one uses it. But' it does give a fake sense of camaraderie and confused people can misunderstand it for 'real' organization. It also slows down speed of real time response since it provides more time to respond, that's why many teens who have been too much into chatting/SMing look slow in person.
