Thinking about Warhol and research bots

Been thinking a lot about my conversation with @john.griffiths7 re research bots.  These are automated twitter accounts, for example, that collect tweets on selected topics (e.g. London, word of mouth markting, innovative) and then creates tweets based on what it collects.   What started out as a very innovative online research technic is fast becoming a way to cheat the online system.  Thinking seriously about pulling a ‘Warhol’ stunt to create a bot about marketing – - one who attends events, even – - and then use this to show what is happening out there.  Then I started thinking about the professional and ethical implications.  Any other views about whether gaming the system…even if for a ‘Warhol’ like purpose….is right or wrong?  @WOMMAUK
