In order to regulate speech, two journalists created a Twitter bot to “correct” people who refer to an individual who is in the country illegally as an “illegal immigrant.” Twitter users, however, did not take kindly to the bot and the account has been suspended as of the afternoon of Aug. 3.

The “’Drop the ‘I’ Bot” functioned by automatically tweeting at people who used the phrase “illegal immigrant” and prompting them to, instead, use terms such as “undocumented immigrant” or “unauthorized immigrant.” According to the bot, “People aren’t illegal.”
