Here in the Open Lab we're always looking for novel ways to contribute to editorial projects. So when BuzzFeed SF started planning Frisco Day, we knew we needed to support our colleagues with a Twitter bot.
Some were unamused.
And our Twitter API access was promptly suspended.
Turns out Twitter isn't super thrilled when bots reply to people who don't follow them.
But some people stood up for us.
And we built up a loyal following. So what now?
Well, we've updated Frisco Bot, and we're going to keep it running. It won't pester you unless you follow it, but if you'd like Frisco Bot to help you break the habit of calling it San Francisco, you should follow @frisco_bot!
