Hooray for Twitter Bots!

When we recently referenced Seinfeld and The Big Lebowski on Twitter, we got auto-replies back from @hellooooonewman and @TheBotLebowski. This led us in turn to  Neil Kodner, a 39-year-old Hollywood, FL father of two who has been building a mini-empire of these so-called Twitter bots.

It started with Lebowski in February and really picked up a few months later when actor Adam Baldwin began re-tweeting Kodner’s Full Metal Jacket ode @worldofshit, which barks back orders worthy of R.

Anyway, we spotted Stephen Baldwin. We didn’t actually go looking for him he just paraded around the room a couple of times. We didn’t find him on the schedule. Saturday, Adam Baldwin (no relation) is on a panel for the series Chuck. We don’t know what Stephen is doing here. Didn’t ask. Actually, now that we think of it…don’t care.
