"an ancient Assyrian ? Aramaic language" -- How To Find Fake Twitter Accounts

So, one of my Twitter feeds pulls in every time "Aramaic" "Syriac" or "Peshitta" is mentioned, and very often I get the same phrase coming back at me time and time again:

"an ancient Assyrian ? Aramaic language"

Again... and again... and again... Not re-tweeted. Simply verbatim. It's maddening.

What do all of these verbatim posts have in common?

They all come from shill Twitter accounts. They are bots spouting rounds of nonsense from the same book of quotes. Each of those accounts has 0 followers and most of the tweets are the same (albeit in different order). Perhaps they are to later used for nefarious purposes? I do not know. All that I do know is that there are a lot of them and that, they just junk up my feeds.

What gives? Leave Aramaic alone, Twitter bots!
