That bots can be both useful, annoying and sometimes outright hilarious is nothing new. They’ve been around for many years and have often been used as some sort of artificial intelligence medium on websites. Even very recent and successful platforms like Slack have a “chat bot” which can make you get accustomed to using the app. The story is completely different when talking about Twitter, where auto reply bots have been a big source of annoyance for me personally. In a time where businesses are all about the “personal touch” when it comes to user interactions there’s really no place for lousy Twitter bots. So please, stop annoying us and stop using bots!
