Detecting Twitter bots that share SoundCloud tracks


Sharing platforms for creative content are often closely connected to general purpose social media platforms like Twitter.

This work-in-progress paper presents first results from an effort to develop activity metrics that enable the detection of Twitter bots promoting SoundCloud content.
