Twitter Launches ‘good bots’ Labels

Twitter defines "good bots" that help people find useful, entertaining, and relevant information

 Bot accounts on Twitter will be displayed with a new robot icon next to the profile name, and a marker denoting that the account is automated.

The same will also be displayed in the tweet feed, with an ‘Automated’ tag beneath the profile name on tweets.

In a press release, Twitter stated, "There's a large community of developers working hard to make bots that are useful and interesting."

"From humorous emoji mashups to breaking news, #GoodBots keep people informed of useful, entertaining, and relevant information." The badge will provide more information about the bot and its purpose on Twitter, allowing users to better pick which accounts to follow, connect with, and trust."
