So one twitter bot I found to be really interesting was @NSA_AllStars. This bot basically emphasizes the fact that the NSA is spying on everybody, but it specifically emphasizes all of the little things that the NSA can gather but shouldn’t really have access to. I like the fact that it uses the high level NSA employee names along with trivial high-school type behavior. Also, all the tweets happen to make sense, with most of the twitter bots only like a few of them actually looked like they weren’t auto generated. If it feels like a twitter bot then it is kind of not clever or funny to me in some type of way, however this account reads almost like a Wall Street Journal tweet – I appreciate that.
