“I LOVE BOTS” feels like a controversial statement now, given the rise of troll farms deploying them and the proliferation of egg accounts spreading bad information or engaging in harassment. Even if you set aside, say, their use by state actors to engage in digital political warfare, some bots are just annoying, spamming links to shady ecommerce web shops underneath viral posts.

The main issue is that Twitter and other social media apps have little-to-no Sybil resistance that can moderate them, so we see these incredible swarms piling in and altering/polluting the discourse.
