In the weeks before the Brexit vote, Twitter users in the UK voiced their concerns, opinions, and questions about the important decision of whether their country should remain in the EU. Alongside them, an army of bots mindlessly spouted the rhetoric they were programmed to share.

In a preliminary study on how Twitter bots (and heavily automated accounts) engaged in the Brexit discussions, two researchers from Oxford and Corvinus University found that they were a significant presence, largely pro-Brexit, and that together both sides spammed users on the platform with over 180,000 tweets in one week alone.

While the researchers note that their data sample was limited due to the fact that Twitter does not make all posts publicly searchable, the data consisted of over 313,000 tweets between June 5 and June 12.
More Brace Yourselves: Chatbots Are Coming

The study analyzed both accounts that were openly identified as bots (in its tag or account description) as well as the ones that featured “heavy automation,” tweeting at least 50 times per day, noting that less active bots tweeting about the Brexit may have been skipped over.

The two most active accounts on either side of the debate were discovered to be bots: @ivotestay and @ivoteLeave, both of which were created in April. These digital propaganda machines were programmed to automatically retweet messages in support of the platform they were created to represent, using hashtags like: #strongerin, #remain, #voteremain, #votein, #bremain, #labourin, #votestay, #intogether, #labourinforbritain, #greenerin, and, on the flip side, #brexit, #voteleave, #leaveeu, #takecontrol, #betteroffout, #voteout, #beleave, #brexitthemovie, #euistheproblem, #brexitbustour.

Additionally, researchers said they were “almost certain” that seven of the top 10 accounts tweeting about the issue were bots.
