Taking Back Friendship

“I no longer want my friends to have this passive peepshow into my life and I don’t want to have the same view of theirs. I want us to talk. I want a personal email. I want to find a way to share photos in a way that encourages us to talk about them with each other. I want to chortle over sushi about the random events and cry together over wine when heartbreak attacks. In short, I want my friends back. The only way I can do that is to cut the cord.” –

Some of my best friends

In order to get the attention of a Realboy’s community, we decided that the Realboy should tweet about the topics that are important to the community. In order to avoid having to worry about natural language parsing and sentence construction, we decided to simply duplicate tweets about these important topics. We decided to let each Realboy automatically tweet every so many hours, and start friending several community members at a time after building up a small history of tweets.
