The masterclass will consist of two parts. In the first part Darius Kazemi will showcase some bots, their concepts and development. The second part of the masterclass is focused on developing (conceptual) twitter bots.

Participants will discuss platform specific bots, investigate the differences and relations between human and algorithmic perception, and will critically review concepts for twitter bots. During the masterclass participants will have the opportunity to build their own twitter bot. More info on the programme of the masterclass will follow after application.
