After the collapse of cooperation on a superhero between two corporations on the network, the hashtag “SaveSpiderman” (“Save Spider-Man”) began to gain popularity.
Since it was Sony who preferred to break off relations, rather than sharing all movie fees and expenses for their production, many network users opposed it.
But some have noticed that dozens of Disney Twitter posts are of the same type. A user with the nickname Dataracer came to the conclusion that this is a deliberate attack on Sony using bots and gave examples of copied posts.
Among other things, Dataracer noted a large number of likes on posts with a hashtag and illiterate responses of alleged “bots” to the allegations.
Now #SaveSpidermanFromSony is trending and the "Sony attack tweets" are getting 5k-20k likes in the last 3-6 hours.— Dataracer (@Dataracer117) 21 August 2019
Disney's pulling ops to place social media pressure on Sony to fold.

Now “SaveSpiderManFromSony” has become trendy, and tweets with an attack on Sony gain 5-20 thousand likes in 3-6 hours. Disney wants to click on Sony in social networks to make concessions. Walt Disney would fire Bob Iger if he was alive now.
I confirm – the bot in broken English writes tweets for Disney. “I don’t hear him. This is not radio on Twitter.”
On the net you can really find copied posts with phrases about “10 years wasted” and “Tom Holland, years working on the ideal image of Peter Parker.” But at the moment there are only a few dozen of them, which is not too similar to the “organized attack”.
At the same time, the most popular of the “template” tweets were written by users from Asian countries. Some have suggested that this explains both errors in English speech and copy-paste instead of retweets.
To be honest the english is correct, it's missing punctuation, but it makes sense.— Vítor Carvalho (@vectthor) 22 August 2019
P1: You heard him…
P2: No, I didn't hear him, this is twitter not radio. (It's a joke, you can't hear a tweet, that's why he said that.)
Honestly, English is not so illiterate. There is no punctuation in the sentence, but it is quite meaningful. “You heard him …” – “No, I didn’t hear him, this is twitter, not radio.” This is a joke, a tweet cannot be heard, so he said that.
As another Indian, some of them aren't bots. They're just unoriginal Indians who stole tweets & reposted them.— Lover Bajpai 🐝 (@DaLoverBoii) 21 August 2019
As an Indian, I can say that some of them are not bots. Just non-original Indians who stole tweets to repost them.
Disagreements between Disney and Sony became known from media reports on August 20. The next day, Sony confirmed the situation, explaining what happened with the employment of producer Kevin Feigi, head of Marvel Studios.
At the moment, it is not known whether Spider-Man performed by Tom Holland in the MCU, or disappears from it.
