Your Personal Twitter-Bot

If you’ve seen the first episode of Black Mirror season two, the basic premise of _LIVESON should strike you as familiar: The service promises to analyze your Twitter feed and continue to post on your behalf when you’re dead. “When your heart stops beating, you’ll keep tweeting” is their tagline.

On a more lighthearted note, there are other reasons to hand over responsibility for your social media existence to the bots as CouchCachet demonstrates:

CouchCachet finds the coolest parties in your neighborhood, and automatically checks you in on Foursquare so all your friends can be super jealous of how awesome you are. Plus it will tweet all the right lyrics from the right indie rock bands, post amazing images of young 20-somethings in skinny jeans from instagram and wax poetic about that perfect local, organic, microbrew that everyone’s drinking. You won’t be cooler, but you will seem that way.

Brilliant.
