ChatGPT-generated fake replies flooded Twitter and other social media
If you use social media, you may have come across a message or tweet that seems too good to be true. It could be a reply to a question or a comment on a post you’d made. But whatever it is, you get the feeling that it’s not quite right. It turns out that you may be right. Users have found that hundreds of fake replies are being generated every day by the ChatGPT chatbot. These replies are being posted on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms.
The examples found that the majority of these fake replies are positive in nature and often praise the original poster or message. This is being done in an attempt to make the chatbot appear more human-like. ChatGPT uses contextual information to engage in conversation. The more information the chatbot has about the context of the conversation, the more likely it is to be able to keep the conversation going.
ChatGPT is not the only AI-generated chatbot that is flooding social media with fake replies. However, it is the most successful one so far. Photostocks and art platforms flooded by tons of AI-generated content are facing the same problem.
This is a serious problem, as it can lead to people believing that they are interacting with real people when they are not.
TwitterGPT: Let Twitter get bogged down in AI-generated tweets
Twitter has long been known as a platform that can be easily used for spreading misinformation. With the recent release of the TwitterGPT extension, this is now easier than ever. TwitterGPT is a Google Chrome extension that uses API calls to ChatGPT to produce tweet replies automatically. The video below demonstrates how it works. In other words, it’s now effortless to spread misinformation on Twitter on an industrial scale.
But the question remains, is a Twitter account considered a person or a bot if it uses TwitterGPT to increase its activity? After all, each tweet receives a choice of responses.
TwitterGPT is just the latest in a long line of automated tweeting tools. There are already numerous new AI bots that are active on the platform, contributing to the noise and confusion.
The ease with which TwitterGPT can be used to create bots raises serious questions about the future of the platform. Can Twitter survive if it becomes clogged with automated tweets? Only time will tell.
