Using at least 300 words (but no more than 600), please respond to the following questions:
1) The authors of this article give some praise to Botometer as a tool outside of academic applications. What are their reported downfalls of Botometer?
2) The authors point out that a potential counterargument to criticism against tools such as Botometer is that “Botometer is mainly an approximation” or “you can instead use Botometer to approximate ‘bottiness'”. In your opinion, should approximations be used to make determinations of identity, status, etc? Is it ok because we are simply dealing with bots instead of, for example, crime?
3) The authors seem optimistic that future work in this field is promising. Summarize their recommendations to other researchers for steps to take in future studies. Do you agree? What could potentially be at stake here? Imagine that your favorite social media implements a program that automatically deletes accounts that it suspects are bots. What could the potential effects be? What if this bot same bot is used for other languages/cultures/modes of communication?
