8. Totally meaningless move by Twitter

Note that this is NOT banning or even suspending the accounts of the bots. This is merely hiding the fact that they exist. It does NOTHING at all to stop:

- Propaganda
- Falsified news reports
- Unconfirmed news reports
- Conspiracy theories
- Harassment, trolling & instigation
- Threats of violence & civil war

You can't fix the damn problem by hiding it under the damn rug.
