Abstract

In this paper, we analyze the message exchange patterns that emerge when social bots and human users communicate via Twitter. In particular, we use a multilayer network to analyze the emergence of the corresponding representative and statistically significant sub-graphs (so called motifs). Our analysis is based on two recent riot events, namely the Philadelphia Super-bowl 2018 riots and the 2017 G20 riots in Hamburg (Germany). We found that in these two events message exchanges between humans form characteristic and re-occurring communication patterns. In contrast, message exchanges including bots occur rather sporadically and do not follow a particular statistically significant pattern.
