Bring on the personal autobots

lol funny story this morning.

Someone I know personally, posted something about the Mets baseball team this morning on his twitter account.

An automated software application that i had built for me recently, My Twitter Butler , saw this post about "Mets" on the twitter message API stream and automatically started to follow his Twitter account (not for my main twitter account http://twitter.com/deancollins , but for my http://www.livebaseballchat.com/ twitter account at http://twitter.com/lbbchat ).

Because LBBChat started following his twitter account, his twitter robot account followed me back automatically.

Apart from the fact that i was online at the time and recognised his photo and sent him an email to explain about what i had created with My Twitter Butler neither of us would have noticed that our 'autobots' had found each other on the internet independantly and was going to start streaming us information.

Lol bring on the personal autobots.
