We’ve started tracking the narrative structure of r/wallstreetbets.

Over an 8 hour period y’day, we tracked ~30,000 posts. Of those posts, 97% were removed by mods/filters. It’s all bots, all the time.

Once again, you’re being played.
BTW, you're also being played on Twitter. Me, too.

I used to think it was the quality of my tweets that drove my follower count going up or down. LOL. I can track almost to the hour when Twitter turns on or off their promotion algos for my stuff.
This isn't about bots or any individual mode of spoof.

It's about how ALL of social media has been successfully gamed by investment pros, is being successfully gamed by investment pros, and will be successfully gamed by investment pros.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
And by investment pros I don't mean "hedge funds" (although yes, that, too). I mean @elonmusk. I mean @Benioff. I mean @chamath. I mean every billionaire who goes on Twitter or CNBC to tell you *how to think* about their latest promote.
Case in point.

You think @elonmusk doesn't know this tweet is sophist bullshit? You think he's not tweeting this instrumentally as part of his larger game? You think it's not incredibly effective?

This is what I mean when I say that we are being played. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1354890601649610753?s=20
