There are so many arguments happening on Twitter at all times. The worst of these are usually started by people in certain camps who search Twitter for keywords in order to start arguments with people they disagree with. Well now writer and activist Sarah Nyberg (@srhbutts) has developed a way to give the rest of us a break, by occupying these kinds of people with a Twitter bot called @ARGUETRON aka the best name ever.
Using the profile name 'Liz', to cleverly attract men who simply want to tell women they are wrong, the bot periodically tweets progressive statements, designed perfectly to attract arguments from groups like men's rights activists, Trump supporters, transphobes and Gamergaters.
The bot replies with an automated response if you tweet at it. It isn't the most sophisticated bot, and a lot of what it responds with does not make sense - but this actually proves the point even more, because it doesn't seem to matter. So many people will go out of their way to argue with it regardless of context or logic. It's actually amazing.
Keep it up, everyone!
