While anyone who has spent time on Twitter knows it's full of automated accounts, a report from the Pew Research Center sheds new light on the degree to which bots dominate the conversation on the social media platform. According to the Pew study, a whopping 66 percent of tweeted links to the web's most popular sites are shared by bots.
