Twitter Bots: An Analysis of the Links Automated Accounts Share | Pew Research Center - Apr 2018
"An estimated two-thirds of tweeted links to popular websites are posted by automated accounts – not human beings"

"This analysis finds that the 500 most-active suspected bot accounts are responsible for 22% of the tweeted links to popular news and current events sites over the period in which this study was conducted. By comparison, the 500 most-active human users are responsible for a much smaller share (an estimated 6%) of tweeted links to these outlets."
