How An A.I. Donald Trump Is Making Twitter Great Again

As if the world needed more Donald Trump, a researcher at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory has created an artificial intelligence algorithm that spews Trumpisms, 1000 characters at a time.

The network’s creator, post-doc Brad Hayes, then takes the best 140 characters and tweets them.
