Gotta Love Those Bots

One thing on Twitter makes me laugh more than anything else - BOTS.

I think it all started when I began tweeting about bacon. Probably at Dudefest. All the sudden bacon people were following me and retweeting me whenever I mentioned bacon. Since mom does Twitter for her job she started wondering what kind of apps these guys use. Anyway, we had some fun about the bacon bots.

Then there's the pet bots: @Anipals, @ASmarterDog and @PetBizRipoffs. Well, we think they are bots because all they do is Retweet folks. They seem to be affiliated with something called Pawsville that isn't in service any more. Who knows. What's funny is that they randomly retweet my tweets and others and sometimes it is just so funny. Tonight they decided to retweet what I tweeted about mom drinking coffee with Kahlua White Russian mix in it. Seems like lately they are retweeting me more than usual. Maybe efurrybuddy else is blocking them. I kind of enjoy them.

Then there was the Twitter people that kept registering all my new avatars. I think they are behind a few so maybe they stopped.

Who or what is behind these Twitter accounts? Makes my head hurt to think about it so I just bark out loud when I see them.

Then something spooky happened the other night. I was tweeting with @MattieDog and mentioned I was thinking about going a little risque with my next avatar. He told me to go for it. But then, @_magic8ball tweeted me:

OMD - it told me not to. Bad thing was I had already loaded it up. It's a good avatar but I have had a few pals talk about my limited endowment and a bunch of pals mention that I'm nekkid. Was @_magic8ball right? NAH! The new avie is fun!

P.S. Nekkid in famous art is perfectly okay. This is a famous fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo called "The Creation of Adam."

Oh, I blocked all those bots, they woz so annoying! Made me want to put the bitey on them all the times. One time I tweeted about bourbon and had Jim Bean following me. Now that I BOL'd about! Oh, and I is thinking based on your nekkid avitar that you is neutered, rite?

Famous art isn't nekkid, it's nude. Nude is artistic. So, you aren't nekkid, you're nude. That's ok.

I don't mind the bots so much. It's when the noggity nekkid ladies start sending tweets that really bothers me. Their avatars are nekkid...but they are NOT art like yours!
