Homeland Security Twitterbot

This was a temporary tactical performance bot that questioned Homeland Security’s creation and use of a keyword surveillance list on Twitter and Facebook. The bot randomly spit out sentences that included words from this list, including unlikely words such as ‘bacteria’ and ‘plume,’ to more commonly used words such as ‘disaster’ or ‘response.’
