INTERNET ART: networks, performative programming, and web as context

Internet Performance Bot

Leave a comment

For my internet performance, I wanted to create a bot that would exist on the internet and create a performance on its own, with an initial set of rules that I created. I wanted to set my bot out on its own and see how it interpreted my rules, and what it did with them.

I created a Twitter account called @plzh3lpme, and created an app attached to it. With this app I created a bot that would retweet any tweet with the phrase “how do i” in it.

This account created an interesting look at the desires and social media personas of people using Twitter.
