Bot Account

A bot account is an automated account created and managed by a software program, or “bot”, rather than a human. The permissibility and classification of a bot account depends on the rules of the respective service and the bot’s activities, which could be benign, harmful, or neutral. Bot accounts can be used for a variety of purposes, including spamming, amplifying certain messages or content, or performing tasks such as liking or retweeting specific posts.
