    What InspiroBot of US people hold is obviously dependent on its form. On April 17, for instance, Instagram account of fully automated Sinnsprüchegenerators message "Humankind is okay", human race is fine, written on a dreamy of a forest trail. A few weeks earlier, on 22 March, machine-created daily slogan "Humans are horrible": people are awful. The photo showed rear view of a surfer in a bikini. A classic text-image-scissors had produced machine re, quite mischievous, at best bizarre, but basically harmless.

    Or bots, i.e. computer programs that, without human intervention, post thousands of contributions every day, especially on Twitter and Facebook, are anything but harmless. They serve, for example, for dissemination of fake news or specifically to reinforce effect of certain political messages. During U.S. election campaign 2016, for example, Russian bots sent 469,000 retweets from Donald Trump's official account on Twitter. Currently, US president re 52.5 million followers, more than a quarter of which are not flesh and blood, but algorithms.

On advice of users, social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter would have to check and Mark suspected bot profiles within 72 hours.

    At end of May, California Senate approved draft with majority vote of Democrats. If or chamber of Parliament, in which Democrats also have majority, agree with him and governor does not veto it, law could come into force by end of August. "We can't get rid of se bots," says Hertzberg, "and that's not what we're aiming at. But we have states like in Wild West, and no one knows rules. "

    Although regulations would apply only to this one U.S. state, SB 1001 could have a worldwide signal effect – after all, it's about California, home of tech industry. The law would resident companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Apple and Microsoft directly.
