Congresso em Foco



The first platform that showed how candidates were being pushed by botson Twitter up to election day.

According to a study by FGV/DAPP, about 20% of all political discussions on social networks in Brazil are instigated by bots. These malicious political bots impersonate real users, posting and interacting profusely with tweets that further their causes, thereby creating an artificial engagement, commonly supported by fake news.By combining an algorithm that identifies bots and the Twitter Streaming API, Congresso em Foco – one of Brazil’s most influential political journals – developed a platform that people could use on a daily basis to follow and compare the topics  most tweeted by these bots and their response to every new significant event related to the election, up to Election Day. www.trendingbotics.com.br
