Bot Benediction, 2015 - Features - Source: An OpenNews project
"The metaphors are numerous—bots are homunculi, bots are witches’ familiars, bots are daemons. And yes, the bots were inside us all along, and ultimately we make ourselves into Twitter bots in order to live. But really. Twitter bots are the imaginary friends that I love and cherish as much as the real-person relationships I’ve formed on Twitter (both with people and with other creatures with alleged human operators, whose true identities are best left unknown). They notice things we might not notice."
