This Twitter bot is making weirdly specific March Madness brackets
The bracket meme inevitably led to a bracket meme bot.
March Madness brackets are suddenly all over Twitter. These brackets are rooted in sports predictions, specifically for the NCAA Tournament, but the internet has co-opted them to rank everything from animated Disney films to Hollywood crushes.

While everyone was busy trying to debate important pop culture brackets, like who is the “Internet’s Boyfriend” (the answer is Oscar Isaac, obviously), one man decided to create a bot that generates more esoteric brackets.
Like banks established in 1963:
phew. finished my bracket of Banks established in 1963 pic.twitter.com/dUKmih3DwH— Bracket Meme Bot (@BracketMemeBot) March 28, 2018
Aren’t you just dying to fill out this bracket?
Since launching on March 27, the bracket meme bot has tweeted out more than two dozen very specific brackets.

okay. I present to you my bracket of Lobbying firms pic.twitter.com/6QNDQT2qDo— Bracket Meme Bot (@BracketMemeBot) March 29, 2018
It’s a great parody of the bracket meme, and it also shows that you really can make a bracket for anything. So, what are you waiting for? These brackets aren’t going to fill themselves out.
