Imagine in a few years being able to say to chatgpt8:
Please promote my product on the fediverse by registering 100,000 accounts over the course of 12 weeks on at least 500 different instances, weighted by instance size. These accounts should be conversational and engaging with other members and should not be detectable as bots. 10% of of these bots should express skepticism in my product, and the remaining bots should engage them in a public discourse to correct their misunderstanding. Monitor the sentiment of people discussing my product and develop an optimal strategy to maximize that sentiment. “

There's been conversation surrounding people from the birdsite not consenting to their tweets showing up here, but under the twitter terms of service, their tweets can be embedded anywhere by anyone, so I don't think that holds water. People can put a stop to it by making their Twitter accounts private. 🤷♂️

This. Is. Amazing.
Montréal suburb Brossard has a traffic light in a school zone that defaults to red, and only turns green when an attached speed camera detects a car driving under the speed limit.
The light is on a 90-day trial, on a 2-lane residential street. Similar signals are widespread across Europe.
Before it was installed, average vehicle speeds of 40 km/h. But in the past week, average speeds have dropped to 29 km/h.
My little brother just produced a new song and it’s quite a banger!
