Good. This is a scandal 🤯 . There are 3612 accounts that participated in the #BoliviaNoHayGolpe and they have between zero and a follower. And the most scandalous thing is there are 4492 accounts that were created between yesterday and today to participate in the HT. They created 4492 accounts in two days. 😳
