You re About To Launch A Resell Rights Attack So Deadly That Your Visitors Will Instantly Throw Up
It’s so accidentally whimsical, in exactly the same sort of way email spam is whimsical and magical.
“One of humanity s greatest unspoken fears is”
Great, now I’ll never know.
At least you know it is, and isn’t not.
Well, that was far more fun than I expected. 12-16 baby corn.
Definitely could be the #2 account on Twitter, but in my opinion nobody can top @DadBoner:
great. now I’m down the rabbit hole with Karl. so much for getting anything done on my day off, you guys.
I get enough of it in retweets, but it IS bloody genius. We’ve found our infinite monkeys I guess.
Why are articles about spammy/lulzy Twitter accounts so bloody l-o-n-g? They’re like the anti-Twitter. (ADHD, what’s that?)
Tell me about it, I’m actually a little annoyed at Rob for stealing my lunch break.
One of my happiest twitter moments (which isn’t saying much really; still) was when horse_ebooks followed me. Made my weekend.
So, basically, this spambot is a neighsayer?
“Are you sick of seeing magazine pregnancy models perform outdated lateral raises”
Reminds me of the Hybrid in Battlestar Gallactica. Maybe she was just spouting spam all along…
So, stupid question: are all spambot tweets written by software programs? Or is an actual person writing these?
Well, by definition if it’s a spambot tweet it came from a spambot, bot’s aren’t people.
Well, it might be a bot. Or it may be not a bot.
Ok, stupid question: are all spambot tweets written by software programs? It seems incredible that random sentences could be so serendipitously awesome.
“It isn’t a parody account and it doesn’t tell jokes”I disagree. There might have been a spambot at some point in the past, but these updates are far too… curated to not be intentionally selected.
