Auf Einladung des European Economic and Social Committee EESC war botswatch beim Media Seminar in Madrid dabei um über Social Bots und ihren Einfluß auf die Gesellschaft zu sprechen. Das EESC ist beratendes Organ der Europäischen Union.
„Social bots tried to influence society; they tried to shape the preferences of voters, not only in the US but also in Europe and other countries. Some of them concentrated on the refugee crisis and 28 minorities in society. Revolution was a very important thing for social bots, some focused on women and many of them were keen to see a divided society.“ Summary
