Explore black history with Twitter DMs
We’re here to celebrate and encourage diverse perspectives.
To chat with the bot, all you have to do is direct message @Blackbirds. From there, the bot will tell you one of four things: a today in #BlackHistory fact, a community event in cities like New York, San Francisco or Atlanta (#ForTheCause), tips on #SelfCare or notable moments and content from prominent black people on Twitter (#ForTheCulture).
But based on the way Blackbirds designed the bot, people will only be able to interact via quick replies, as all of the answers have been pre-loaded. If people respond with something racist, the bot won’t recognize it as a valid response.
