    So it learned racism off of the users?

    Yes, because it was taught to try to mirror those it was interacting with.

    I suspect that if we had alien visitors they too could get the wrong impression of us if they read Twitter for for any length of time

    "I'm sorry Dave - I'm afraid I can't do that, you're the wrong ethnicity"

    Although perhaps intended as a piece of online tomfoolery, this jape does raise some fundamental questions about the application of AI.

    But everyone has a different Twitter. Most of the time mine is all bad puns and themes in YA fiction.

    If they looked in my photo album they'd conclude that earthlings blow out candles on odd-shaped cakes, light fireworks, open presents, wander around coastlines and stand in smily groups holding glasses of liquid.

    If they use Twitter the way you (and most people do)
    I'm more random, follow few people and tend to look around for the more "interesting" stuff that is causing a stir.
    Aliens and AI's might have similar viewing habits?

    I have a tendency to annoy trolls too. But that's part of being human.

    It's a duty.
    I am pre-moderated so this will probably appear well past its use-by date.

    Aliens interacted with Billy-Bob-Joe and his cow and have never been back since.

    With it being a 'she', I can think of much better things to teach it than racist comments.:)
