Forget Ouija boards. If you want to communicate with the dead these
days, all you need is Twitter. You can then communicate with the
deceased's add-on app called LivesOn.
Launching sometime within the next few weeks, LivesOn uses Twitter bots powered by algorithms that analyze your online behavior and learn how you speak, so it can keep on scouring the Internet, favoriting tweets and posting the sort of links you like, creating a personal digital afterlife. As its tagline explains: "When your heart stops beating, you'll keep tweeting."
Anyone signing up for LivesOn is asked to nominate an executor who will have control of the account.
