The misinfosec group eventually developed a structure for cataloging misinformation techniques, based on the ATT&CK Framework. In keeping with their field’s tolerance for acronyms, they called it AMITT (Adversarial Misinformation and Influence Tactics and Techniques).

Technique 54 is amplification by Twitter bots. But the database is just getting started.
