What happened to Trump's army of Twitter defenders, bots and trolls?

Have you noticed that when you now read a Tweet from Trump, there are barely any posts that support him? You can now read dozens of replies to his Tweets that call out his lies and narcissism, without any of them defending him. This is a good change in the last week or so. Were nearly all his defenders bots that have been banned?

3. I've noticed the same thing the past week or two.

Usually when you click on his tweets, the first several are bots/trolls proclaiming their love for him.


I don't know if there was some mass banning effort from Twitter or something, but they've completely vanished for the most part.

9. Putin's already got what he wanted-- destabilization.

Now he knows he can sow even more chaos by deserting his puppet Trump. So he's called all his bots home.
