    I like to tell the world how I feel and when I buy a pair of shoes or when I'm in the toilet. I like to stay in touch and connected. Apparently now, A.I. can tell how humans are feeling and it's a closer step to our merge with the machines since we already use prosthetics with computer chips in them.

    What the computer may not understand though is that some of us joke using profanity.

    lol they can't reverse a hash but can find out how you're feeling. I prefer the former.

    That's nice and all, but there's only one Twitterbot I can get behind.

    You're asking this... on an online forum, where that's the entire point.

    The irony, it is palpable.

    This reminds me of that "Fuck Frank" twitterbot I accidentally discovered that retweets everything containing the words "fuck" and "frank". Try it out, I'm not sure if it's still active :P
