Hello. I'm not a politician nor am I a famous in any way but I am a concerned American. Our 2016 election was attacked in many ways by foreign governments. I am very concerned that this is happening again today.

Bots are not always harmless. They lend the impression that there is mounting support in one direction or another. They can and have been used to encourage violence. Currently, bots are supporting deep divisions and civil war.

We are nearly at a breaking point in the United States. The deep divide grows deeper by the day. These bot armies or not farms are harvesting people and abusing them. They are spreading political rumors about candidates, sharing insulting and often violent images, giving support to incendiary topics. 

This harms the users engagement and I fear will sway our political processes. 

It is known that celebrities and politicians often purchase followers to give the illusion that their support is growing. Please not only ban the bots but warn those users it is against your policies and they will face punishment on your platform if it continues.

Thank you
