NiceBot combats cyberbullying with sweet tweets

The mostly automated messages post every 30 seconds in an effort to counter mean tweets, which average about one every 60 seconds.

Cyberbullying is the worst. What is it about the Internet that makes the world’s worst people feel like they can say and do whatever they want?

Well, the Champions Against Bullying organization is looking to change that, one tweet at a time—literally.

Meet The NiceBot. As its Twitter bio states, “Something mean is posted on Twitter every 60 seconds, so I have been programmed to deliver random niceness every 30 seconds.”

And it delivers:

@davidgaliel You are an incredible humanoid. #TheNiceBot
