YOU can expose Fake News on Twitter with botcheck.me Love Ash Bhat and Rohan Phadte

CHECK TWITTER FAKE NEWS
Ash Bhat and Rohan Phadte Botcheck.me will allow you to find out if the tweet is a person or a bot. 20-year-old students who study computer science at UC Berkeley, decided to launch a data-driven counterattack, aiming to do what Twitter itself has not: publicly expose alleged bot accounts right there on the platform for the world to see. This week, the duo launched a Google Chrome browser extension that inserts a button onto every Twitter profile and tweet that reads, snappily, “Botcheck.me.” Click it, and you get a diagnosis of whether the account appears to be run by a person or by some sort of automation, based on the duo’s own machine learning model. Their model is targeted exclusively to hunt propaganda bots about US politics.
