@frankhersey The backlash towards privacy infringement in China surprised a lot of people too. Who knows what will happen with bots! I personally hope platforms will take a more serious approach to bot takedowns in the future :)
@tweetbrk Not sure - still experimental. The user experience isn't ideal. It actually took longer to check out than a normal, fully manned shop.
@frankhersey 'Ever' is a long time and hard to predict :) I think it will largely depend on the platforms themselves, ie whether or not they're incentivized to tackle bots, which means there needs to be a significant shift in the current model of advertising/marketing). What about you?
Just discovered a scan & pay convenience store by the office (not unmanned - maybe less manned?!) Rental umbrellas & powerbanks are also available. You have to download their app though - no tie-in w/WeChat https://t.co/mi2WAEhAEc
“The platforms don’t want to control bots [...] When I was working with Tencent’s QQ Video platform, internal employees used millions of bots to watch, rate, and comment on their own pilot episodes.”  https://jingdaily.com/the-follower-factory-in-china/#.Wo4STnp-77c.twitter
