People working for a company/political party, manipulating the system with fake accounts / paid protesters / etc to make it seem as if there's spontaneous support for their product/candidate.

Shills are pretty much the same, but sometimes they're just fanboys that really really really love a particular corporation/politician, no matter what messed up stuff they pull.
