Evil Botgirl: A Dark Social Network Experiment

Evil Botgirl Twitter Avatar

We all have a lurking Shadow that projects the negative judgements we repress about ourselves onto other people. At 8:00 AM Pacific Time tomorrow, @evilbotgirl will launch her debut Twitter rant to personify and give voice to my own inner demon and perhaps channel the darker side of our collective unconscious.

This is dangerous work. Even within the context of supposedly self-reflective performance art, there is a strong seductive glee that arises in the expression of mean-spirited criticism.  So I'm not sure whether this will be a one time performance or an ongoing series.

In any case, I invite you to join in by contributing your Tweets to the hashtag that will be announced tomorrow morning and by following @evilbotgirl and the coming Twitapocalypse.

After the first evil rant, the verdict is still out. Need to get deeper in touch with the character I think.
