Cenzobot

Tags: 
Description (in English): 

Cenzobot is a simple Twitter bot that tweets fragments from real historical censorship reviews of publications from the communist era, written by Polish censors between the 1940s and 1990s. Some of the censors were very skilled critics, often well educated, but other were people completely devoid of talent, especially the ones delegated to review books for children and young adults. Twitter, which today is one of the platforms most associated with digital censorship, was chosen as an appropriate tool to tweet censors’ voices. I came up with the idea to tweet fragments of censors’ reviews after the Twitter Bot Purge in February 2018. I expect that my cenzobot will also be purged by Twitter at some point. It is actually the goal of my work.
