Excited to share the new v.1.3 of BotSlayer, our OSoMe cloud tool that
lets journalists, researchers, citizens, & civil society organizations
track narratives and detect potentially coordinated inauthentic
information operations on Twitter in real-time

https://osome.iu.edu/tools/botslayer/

Based on beta-testers feedback, v.1.3 improvements include:
* Improved back-end stability
* New alert system sends Twitter DMs based on custom rules
* Docker images Installer for Mac
* Front-end performance improvements
* Twitter share buttons for entity spread visualization on Hoaxy
* Improved extraction of non-English phrases
* New popup for bot scores showing distribution and suspicious accounts
* New popups showing timelines for tweets, accounts, trendiness
* Reporting coordination for each entity with visualization in Hoaxy
* Random 1% sample in alternative to track, location, or follow
streams * Interface improvements
* bug fixes

We have lots more in the pipeline for future versions, but wanted to
release this version in time for those who would like to use BotSlayer
to monitor #Election2020 manipulation -- try it!
