I had another Russian friend me yesterday. In checking the profile, I was pretty sure I had another bot.
1) the account is at least a year old and has had regular posts
2) the posts all make sense
3) comments are met with a reply
The user horoshienovosti
has over 1600 friends. That sent up a big red flag, however, I think these are real. The name tells it all: horoshi novosti. In Russian this is хорошие новости and means "good news". It is also a real news website
I like this place. It is all safe for work good news. NO BAD NEWS. All the posts are directed toward some positive aspect or goings on. How refreshing!
So be forewarned, if you get a "friend me" from horoshienovosti
, I believe it to be a legitimate user.
