The Hollywood Reporter recently posted an article about a study that examined tweets directed at Rian Johnson, following the release of The Last Jedi. And the study finds that more than half of all the negative tweets are not by real fans but are either politically motivated by the alt-right or come from Russia in order to sow dissent. I did read the actual paper and if you click through I will provide some additional info.

Website Filmschoolprojects has an article about the “The Last Jedi” making of documentary. In the documentary it is said that Russian Twitter bots actually started a #HuxLive campaign early on to make sure the character won’t be killed in the movie.
Director Rian Johnson is quoted as saying: “It’s amazing, there’s a coordinated effort by these Russian accounts. Hundreds of them.”
Is this the actual reason Hux survives The Last Jedi? I doubt it. Whatever, I wish those Russian Twitter bots had started a #LukeLive campaign instead.
