    Default Faking it with robo tweets

    Not sure whether this is just interesting or a slightly terrifying warning of where things are heading... Faking it with robo tweets.

    That link leads to somewhere decidedly dodgy, would you like to confirm it's you and not a bot that did the post?

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    That's a bit ironic, given the subject, but I did post it, and having clicked the link again three times I got straight to the right page twice and the screen you presumably saw once. Anyway, if you don't want to risk it, try to find somebody who subscribes to Beer 52 because the same article features in Issue 40 of its Ferment magazine.

    There was a joke made by someone a few years ago (I forget who) which said that it's only a matter of time before there's a whole brewery that's nothing but a Twitter/Instagram feed with no physical output, but enough bullshitters will be claiming to have drunk their beers via Untappd and the like.
