@GreatArtBot 

Developer Statement:

@greatartbot is a fully automated artist. This vexing virtual virtuoso uses Michael Brough and Andi McClure's Become a Great Artist in Just 10 Seconds to create artwork that is sometimes beautiful and sometimes WAY TOO BEAUTIFUL FOR YOUR STUPID HUMAN EYES. Oh, yeah, it also shares them on twitter.

@PlayLightsOut

Developer Statement:

@playlightsout is a twitter port of Lights Out and the first (as far as I know) graphical game on the twitter platform. This bot currently only supports a single game (per player) at a time and may be the first twitter bot with system requirements, as it relies on emoji available only on iOS & OS X.
