This is achieved by means of well-defined rhetorical and psychological devices. Currently, propaganda (or persuasion) techniques have been commonly used on social media to manipulate or mislead social media users. More detail on the techniques can be found here: https://propaganda.qcri.org/annotations/definitions.html.
