twittaVor ein paar Wochen erst wurde der Random Darknet Shopper, ein Kunstprojekt mit einem Bot, der zufällige Dinge im Darkweb bestellt (u.a. Drogen und gefälschte Sneaker), von der Polizei hochgenommen wurde und jetzt hat ein Coder Besuch von den Cops bekommen, weil sein Algo-Poetry-Bot (ein Remix seiner eigenen Tweets) einem anderen Bot eine Todesdrohung schickte.

Van der Goot’s bot used his own tweets as fodder, taking random chunks of them and trying to recombine them into new sentences that made sense. According to van der Goot, the bot tweeted something that sounded like a threat which mentioned an upcoming event in Amsterdam. Best of all, the bot was responding to another bot, according to van der Goot. He is not identifying the bot and says he has deleted it, per the request of the police. If this is not a hoax, this may be the first time police had to respond because of a robot-on-robot threat of violence.
