Twitter has started showing which accounts are run by bots

Twitter makes it easier to see who you are interacting with through its network.
The company announced that it has begun testing labels to tell you which Twitter accounts have been automated on Thursday. The label will be displayed on both the account profile (where you can also see who is running the bot) and on individual tweets.

Twitter explained in a FAQ that the idea behind this feature is to distinguish good bots and spammy bots, and increase transparency.

You might also see bots on Twitter that can help you locate disaster early warning systems and vaccine appointments. The FAQ states that these accounts will let you know when they are automated so you can better understand their purpose while interacting with them."

Twitter claims it is only testing the feature on "a few accounts", but it should offer accounts the option to add the label "soon."
