Commentary by Stephen Downes

I was watching a item on the news this morning tracking Twitter reaction to some televised events and I thought to myself, "why track this if all the traffic is bots?" And that's part of the answer to the question in the title of this article. And as Jane Hart writes, "over the years the dark side of Twitter has emerged – in the form of the trolls – and this is something that has put off new users signing up to Twitter.  In fact, now that Twitter is up for sale, we can see that this is one of the things that is deterring potential buyers."
