Twitter bots are special Twitter users that provides you with useful information , and sometimes just plain fun stuffs. There are two types of Twitter bots:-
Auto reply bots – you have to send a direct message to this bot to get information
- Announcement bots – simple message broadcasted to you once you start following this bot
