Sexbot instant type dirty chat
What’s ironic about all this is that while Kik is trying to bash away sexy chat bots on its service, it’s preparing to invite a whole other set of automated chat bots, from advertisers.
For years, Kik has been running its own experimental chat bot that tells jokes to users and gets around 1.8 million messages a day.
With more than 120 million registered users, Kik is one of the most popular messaging apps in the world.
Its biggest group of users are young, with around 40% of American teenagers having reportedly tried the service. But they share the network with another big contingent: bots.
But last July, it invited brands to set up their own profiles on Kik and approach its users with automated messages too.
These are fake, autonomous programs that more often than not, try to entice Kik's users to click on paid-for sites with flirty conversations and the promise of porn -- glorified chat bots with one thing in mind.
They might inadvertently lead their bots to meet a porn bot.
