Day 4: 10/12/18
I've been unable to find the time to do another entry the past few days, but nevertheless, I picked back up right where I left off.
Per usual, I began with the conservative profile. I began with the usual websites (Fox News, Info Wars etc.) and decided to add a new one, The Daily Caller, which is an online right-wing news source I also thought it would be a good idea to look up the corresponding candidates for the upcoming Illinois governor race.
Afterwards I took to Twitter. Immediately I discovered that my number of followers had went down by one.
It seems as if the verified Fox 35 Orlando account unfollowed me. I have no idea why the unfollowed me specifically, as they are following hundreds of thousands of people. I followed a few more conservative accounts while also retweeting and liking some of the posts on my feed.
Next, I opened the liberal profile. I repeated the same process as above including the research on the governor's race. I also noticed that the ads I'm receiving still seem to be pretty unbiased and mundane on both profiles
When I opened Twitter, I noticed that I had actually gained a follower.
Upon further inspection, it appears as if this account if for some photographer and has no political affiliation attached to it. He's also following over 200,000 other accounts, but I still have no idea how he found me since I've still posted no original content.
After following a few more accounts, and liking and retweeting some posts, I was out of time. I feel like I'm not getting many remarkable results so far, so I'm just going to stay the course and see what happens at the end.
