TL-DR: Anti-Trump cyborgs dominate, but there is a concentrated, active group of pro-Trump bots and cyborgs. Most of the top cyborgs (14 out of the top 20) oppose Donald Trump while four support him, with two being not clearly aligned in either direction.
Interestingly, of the 253 likely bots and cyborgs who link to URLs external to, the largest sub-group (community #13) consists of 62 predominantly right-wing bots/cyborgs that support Donald Trump.
We performed a follow-on set of Twitter queries for the 62 bots/cyborgs in Community 13 and obtained 183,525 tweets. This second network includes a tightly connected group of these user accounts who retweet and reply to each other.
