Twitter Bot Activity Increased After FTX Listed Tokens

Twitter bots activity significantly increased for crypto tokens that were held by Sam Bankman-Fried's trading firm Alameda Research, after being listed by FTX, as per the report. Cyber-social research and analysis organization Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI) published a report suggesting that a "substantial proportion" of online chatter mentioning coins listed prior to the exchange’s collapse were from "bot-like" accounts. The report found that, once listed on FTX, the proportion of "inauthentic chatter" surrounding the token on Twitter steadily grew from approximately 20% to 50%. NCRI urges the public to develop methods to identify and counter such scams.
