Serbian Progressive Party activists, also known as bots, have until recently been able to leave thousands of pluses and minuses on comments posted on the Kurir and Espreso websites through the VotR2 app, thus influencing the readers of these popular media. The app contains information from the two websites’ code and has been operating independently of the bots’ activities, shows research conducted by the Center for Investigative Journalism of Serbia (CINS).
