Report: WFT used social media bots to praise Daniel Snyder

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to a Richmond Times-Dispatch report, the Washington Football Team is believed to have used bots to attempt to fix their image. It is believed that the team created several new users on Twitter.

These accounts, which are all female, were created in October 2020, the report said. The bots then attempted to praise owner Daniel Snyder.

A bot is a fake account that uses social media to communicate. It is not a real person.

Many bots are used in an attempt to influence a conversation. That’s what these bots that were used to praise Snyder were doing.

This has come to light, as attorney Beth Wilkinson is close to completing her investigation of Snyder.

Last summer, a very damning report came out in the Washington Post that said that women were not treated correctly within the organization. At least 15 women came forward to the paper to tell their stories.

The report also suggested that a private investigator visited with the women, who was hired by Snyder. The women alleged sexual harassment and verbal abuse within the organization.

The story also suggests that Snyder used Facebook ads to promote an article from a website called NYCTalk.org that discusses his charitable involvement.
