About Sarah Nyberg

Hi! I'm a queer trans woman who makes, well, internet stuff. At the moment I plan on focusing mostly on silly Twitter bots and tools for other botmakers.

Stuff I've Made

The most well-received project I've launched was arguetron, a twitter bot that tricks nazis, reactionaries and internet assholes into arguing with it for hours at a time. It received international media attention ranging from sites like GizmodoNY MagDaily DotThe Verge, Australia's SBS Comedy, a segment on the Young Turks and even a feature in Le Monde.

Another bot that I created that has a dedicated following is the Lesbian Pulp Fiction covers bot.

I've also done quite a bit of activism work surrounding both internet harassment and trans issues; this has taken the form of discussing abuse issues with various platforms for the former and talking with journalists to help offer perspectives on trans issues for the latter. I of course do that work because I believe it's important, not because I want to be compensated, but the truth is it takes a lot of time and energy.

From time to time I've also done freelance writing and had pieces appear in Huffington Post, Ravishly, and the BoingBoing games site Offworld. 

Work You'd Be Supporting

You'd be helping me do more of the above! I expect a lot of the updates to my Patreon will focus on building more neat things that live on twitter-- I have a bunch of half-completed projects, and tons more interesting ideas but it's difficult to pursue this kind of stuff without some kind of support.

If you've read all this, thank you so much for considering supporting me, and it'd mean the world to me if you're able to! <3
Goals
$56 of $300 per month
Monthly Project Releases!

With this amount of support I'll be able to dedicate enough time to releasing one bot or related project each month <3
