Today, Twitter introduces a new feature for automated accounts (also
known as “bots”) to self-identify as “good bots” by adding a label to their profile. This will make it
easier for people to differentiate automated from human-run accounts. We launched the experiment of the label in September and are now expanding the feature globally.

All automated accounts will now have the option to add a new label to their account Profile. The label will
give people on Twitter additional information about the bot and its purpose to help them decide which
accounts to follow, engage with, and trust.

GoodBots help people stay apprised of useful, entertaining, and relevant information – from fun emoji mashups to breaking news. There’s a whole community of developers that are working hard to build bots
that are genuinely useful and interesting.

Throughout the week, Twitter will host a series of activations including a Space and live demo for developers
