If you’ve had an opportunity to explore the Steem blockchain and in particular the social-media site built on it – Steemit.com – you know that it’s full of characters. Any of your posts will be subject a diverse spectrum of input from all around the world. Some of them might not even be real people!
This post is a little spotlight on some of my favorite and creative bots that help make Steemit an interesting place. Some are vibrant and add a flair of creativity, some are very utilitarian and serve hardlined purposes. Let’s explore a few of these together –
Feeling a waft of inspiration during your time on Steemit? It’s most likely due to this account – @haikubot. This active little program searches out sentences written by others that can be reformed into a nice italicized haiku.
I’d Rather Get Soup
@grammarnazi’s mission is to do away with all the poor grammar on Steemit. This bot leaves comments on individual posts and other comments to correct major grammatical errors. It even compiles analyses of the more common mistakes ilke thisone.
Unsurprisingly, it isn’t looked upon with forgiving eyes amongst Steemians and has already stooped to a measly ‘11’ rating.
Meep! Meep? Meep…
I really don’t know how to describe this one. It’s even more confusing after any attempt at explanation. The @ionlysaymeep account is just that, an account that only says “meep.” Someone has taken the beloved muppet and assigned him to go around randomly and pop up in a few posts per day, leaving nothing but the expected sound effect.
A Creative Curation Bot
As a final note, The Creative Crypto magazine also utilizes a voting bot to distribute Steem-powered votes. The @creativecrypto account votes on Steemit posts created under the themes of art, creativity, design, and a series of other related tags. For more information on this, check out this announcement.
