This is a simple bot developed on the Twitter platform. The program tweets selections of texts from real censors’ opinions. Twitter, recognised as one of the most censorious platforms today, seemed like the ideal platform for publishing censors’ comments taken from the archives. The idea of tweeting real censorship came about after a purge of bots on Twitter in February 2018. The platform Cheap Bots, Done Quick was used to make the bot.
