Bloomberg Opinion piece regarding Twitter data sets in 2019 Hong Kong anti-extradition bill protests[edit]

There is a discussion on whether Adam Minter's opinion in Bloomberg Opinion piece "When It Comes to Twitter Meddling, China's No Russia" (reproduced below) is considered due weight in 2019 Hong Kong anti-extradition bill protests § Social media.

Whatever the backstory, a brief perusal of the database reveals that the vast majority of content tweeted by these accounts wasn't related to Hong Kong and -- most important -- failed to generate retweets, likes or responses. In fact, most of the tweets in the database have no connection to the protests; some of the most popular appear to link to prurient material.
