Program Uses Algorithms To Tweet As You After Your Death

If social media is what you did while alive, does this mean you are living forever? CNET News on the app Liveson, which continues to generate tweets based on your personality and syntax, in a sense preserving you into eternity:

You might think your online fans will lose interest when you kick the bucket, but an upcoming app says it will let you keep tweeting from beyond the grave.

LivesOn will host Twitter accounts that continue to post updates when users [die]. Developers claim the app’s artificial-intelligence engine will analyze your Twitter feed, learn your likes and syntax, and then post tweets in a similar vein when you’re gone. You’ll become an AI construct, a proverbial ghost in the machine.

The app will launch in March. People who sign up will be asked to appoint an executor who will have control of the account.

    As autocorrect has proven to me personally, the machines don’t even know what we want to say while alive.

      Consumer-grade programs are always behind the “National Security” / Military Intelligence–grade programs.

      Artificial intelligence / spoofing technology is most surely in the Black Bag of super-consumer-grade tech.

      Basically: the technology of the future is already patented and developed (or in the secret process of development) and then it’s advertising and culture programming’s job to get the public aware of it in increments to demand the product.

      Oh, but this is just Proverbial Paranoia — or is it?

      In any case, beware the coming Mind F*** of All Time that says: You can’t prove you and anyone else on The Grid aren’t already dead and-or living in The Matrix, so shut the f*** up and do what you’re told.

    If your friends on FB don’t know you’re dead, they’re not really friends.
    Any anyone who reads your dead posts is dead already.

    At least once a day a bot posts an ad for Ask25.spam
    are we sure that it bot spam or is it a human spammer?

    That’s creepy as hell. Essentially you’d be haunting your Twitter followers with a disturbing stream of discombobulating “you, but not quite you” nonsense. It would be like hiring someone to stick his hand up the ass of your corpse and perform a ventriloquism act for the benefit of your friends and casual acquaintances alike. Who thought this was a good idea?

    Besides, my Twitter followers will be expecting detailed observations on everyday after-life, and I shan’t let them down:

    “Jesus picks his nose, lol!”
