This week, we dive into the topic of Twitter bots. Specifically, we ask the question: are pro-government bot accounts being operated in Ireland?

We also explain what a Twitter bot is, how they typically operator and how to check whether a suspected account is a bot or not.

Adrian Weckler is joined by digital marketing consultant Damien Mulley to explore the figures.

Then Adrian is joined by Paul Campbell, founder of the Irish ticketing reservation platform Tito, who has just launched an online video conferencing platform called Vito. Along the way, Adrian and Paul talk about their insecurities, phone voices and the Irish tech ecosystem.
