Tweets from and about People's Party of Canada (PPC) Leader Maxime Bernier are dominating the #ClimateChange discussion on Twitter, according to an analysis of political tweets from the past 90 days.

The findings highlight how easily social-media hashtags can be hijacked by small groups of accounts. This activity can ultimately derail important discussions while also amplifying extreme voices on issues like the climate crisis.

One striking example is a flood of over a thousand tweets that closely followed Bernier's well-publicized attack on climate activist Greta Thunberg.
