At first I looked at Every Color (@everycolorbot) and was astonished by the number of followers (90.7K!!!!!! that’s way more than Carnegie Mellon’s 39.6K followers @CarnegieMellon) it had for simply tweeting a few random colors throughout the day. Maybe I am not excited about colors as these followers are. Continuing to investigate, I found what I think is a much more interesting color bot: ColorSchemer @colorschemez

“I’m trying to find colors that go well together. I’m probably not very good at it because I’m a robot with no sense of style.”

Having just a small introduction in first person makes the bot more interesting and makes it seem like there’s more meaning behind these random color choices. Then the additional random adjectives that go with the colors produces some humorous content. Comparatively to the Every Color bot, I find this ColorSchemer bot more entertaining and something I’d subscribe to. The screenshots below are some of my favorite descriptions and/or color combinations. Avocado Sanstone…really? 😉
