Twitter introduces new label for 'good bots'

Update : 19 Feb 2022, 10:45

Microblogging platform Twitter has introduced a new feature for automated accounts which is also known as “bots” to self-identify as “good bots” by adding a label (a robot head) to their profile. It will help people to differentiate automated from human-run accounts.

Launched as an experiment in September last year, the use of the label is now being expanded globally. All automated accounts will now have the option to add the new label to their account Profile. 

Good bots can help people find useful, entertaining and relevant information every day

According to Twitter, all automatic accounts have the option to add a new label to your account profile. Labels help people provide additional information about bots, follow them, engage with them, and determine which accounts they trust.

The label gives Twitter users additional information about the bot as well as to help users decide which accounts to follow, engage with, and trust. #GoodBots help people stay apprised of useful, entertaining, and relevant information - from fun emoji mashups to breaking news.

There's a whole community of developers that are working hard to build bots that are genuinely useful and interesting and to show support, Twitter will be hosting a series of activations including a Space and live demo for developers.
