On Thursday, a Twitter bot platform called "Cheap Bots, Done Quick!" suspended their service. But little did they know, this suspension would cause self-help bots @infinite_scream (by Nora Reed) and @tinycarebot (by Jonny Sun) to get caught in an endless loop of their own unique mantras.
@tinycarebot is a personal reminder bot aimed at promoting self-care, whereas @infinite_scream is a more cheeky approach of merely screaming at any and everything.
People felt personally connected to their unique exchange.

Whereas others are simply trying to understand this Twitter magic.
I like to think endless screaming isn't a bot and every tweet is manually made.— Lexa kom Trikru also Josh Allen sucks. (@CriminallyVu1ga) June 8, 2018

This is just about as 2018 as it can get.
