Monthly Bot Challenge: April 2016

Theme

The goal for the April 2016 Monthly Bot Challenge was to create a bot that supports a good cause or raises awareness about an important issue.

You could have made a bot that suggests its followers where to donate money. Or you could have made a bot that tweets as certain events occur.

Prize

The April 2016 Monthly Bot Challenge was sponsored by Knight-Mozilla OpenNews, a project that supports the growing community of people working to help journalism thrive on the open web.

OpenNews publishes Source, the online home for that community, and during the last week of April Source will host its third annual #botweek with technical posts and commentary about how news organizations have used bots to aid their reporting.

Big thanks to OpenNews!
