they realize that their whole twitter life is fake.

I was listening to a podcast the other day where a twitter user explained that when the bot purge happened his 80,000 followers dropped to a mere couple hundred (they were all bots). This person had conversations and interactions with these people for years and could not believe that everything they had thought was real was fabricated.

The twitter bot purge is going to turn peoples whole lives upside down. They have been delusional and led to believe that these bots views represent the world. It is going to destroy them when they come to find out that the reality they have been programmed to think was real was 100% fake. They have been living their lives for updoots and interacting with bots.

This is going to be hilarious to watch the melt down and people waking up to the TRUTH.

What would be even funnier (although there would be no one to fully appreciate the irony) would be to find that bots have been following bots, bots have been DEBATING bots, and carrying out inter-bot-feuds over the years.

Theres a theory on that.

The real internet ended about 2008 when AI started writing news articles just imagine the narrative a bunch of advanced AI bot armies can drum up now?

There’s actually an interesting sub on reddit that is made up entirely of bot accounts that post and interact with each other. A lot of the things they say are completely absurd but it’s interesting. I can’t remember the name of the sub though.

Oh my God, this is incredible.

Suddenly I buy it.

If bots can sound THIS realistic, then maybe Twitter really is loaded with fake people...

This is not sarcasm, I'm completely serious.

That's called politics.
