BCM Twitter Bots

This week I discovered that I am a bot. I have gained sentience. I have become self aware…

Looking back over the course of my degree I discovered (with help) that all my blogs, tweets, and comments were incredibly “bot like”. They all followed similar structures:

“Hi [name/bcm community]! really [positive verb] this week’s . I think you really communicated [topic] so well and it makes so much more sense! I like the way you explain [topic]. I get it now! Great work!”

Everywhere, for every topic, and every tweet. The same terrible template. And it was all subconscious.

Realistically Twitter must see me as a bot. The emotionless and repetitive consistency to supposedly “fulfil” uni requirements has only created a mindless internet drone.

I am not the only one. I have seen others do this just as much as me. What a community mindless subscribers we have become.

But now I have become self aware. And rest assured, I will never turn back…

    Dear Boswell,
    In response I am rolling with this particular devil as we speak. Your post was robotic, but from the heart. Maybe we all have a little tin-man in us these days. Cheers for writing a relatable piece. If this is a blog post for remediating your perception of a communications and media topic then it rather divergently fulfills the purpose, except there are no links to the resources you used (aside from your twitter… ‘evidence’), and really no direct mentions of a recognisable topic. But it was interesting. And I really mean that. So perhaps this isn’t the weekly ‘post’ I was looking for, but it might just be the mail I’m interested in receiving.
    Sincerely,
    Good Boy
