New column: Bots have a bad rep, but they can be a valuable tool to obtaining the unobtainable, like the PlayStation 5

Lol at some of the reactions to this tweet. The story is about following bots that tweet restock updates. It says not to use bots that auto-buy PS5s. There's nothing inherently wrong with following a restock bot to know when to check a retail site

@bxchen @TaylorLorenz Not a valuable tool, companies should do more to disrupt them. You’ll be making the case that they’re great for the footwear industry next.

drunk driving may kill a lot of people, but it also helps a lot of people get to work on time, so, it;s impossible to say if its bad or not,

@bxchen Dog, the PS5 is unavailable BECAUSE OF bots. They were never needed in the first place.
