We've been following Russian bots on twitter for a while. We were wondering how difficult it might be to create our own network of bots.

What it does

It's a bot net. It's a group of users that are constantly tweeting 24/7 and can go and follow or tweet at an account of our choosing.

How we built it

We went on sketchy Russian forums and bot a handful of accounts.

Challenges we ran into

We didn't. Twitter security is very lax.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We have a few accounts that will now probably be considered active users according to Twitter.

What we learned

Twitter has a big bot problem and their not doing enough to stop it.

What's next for Bot Net

We're going to see what happens with a larger botnet.
