Podcast: The Use of Twitter Bots in Russian Political Communications

Today, All the Russias is pleased to feature a podcast recorded during the annual conference of the Program on New Approaches to Research and Security in Eurasia (PONARS Eurasia) in which Jordan Center Director Joshua Tucker discusses research he and his team at the NYU Social Media and Political Participation (SMaPP) lab have conducted on bots in the Russian political Twittersphere.

PONARS is a network of over 100 academics, mainly from North America and post-Soviet Eurasia, advancing new approaches to research on security, politics, economics, and society in Russia and Eurasia. Its core missions are to connect scholarship to policy on and in Russia and Eurasia and to foster a community, especially of mid-career and rising scholars, committed to developing policy-relevant and collaborative research.
