Bot of the U.S.

Trading stocks based on Donald Trump's tweets.

Bot of the U.S. was a Twitter bot created by Alex Goldmark.

From npr.com:

[The bot] looks at President Trump’s Twitter feed, and when he tweets about a company, it trades stocks, with real money. Because the official Twitter handle of the president of the United States is @POTUS, we named our bot @BOTUS, bot of the United States. There’s $1,000 on the line invested by the staff members of the Planet Money podcast from their personal funds.
