A Twitter-bot is sending out random kind messages for the sole purpose of spreading goodwill across social media.
Hello. I am the NiceBot. I want to make the world a nicer place, one tweet at a time. Follow my journey, and have a nice day. #TheNiceBot

The NiceBot is a Twitter account established by the Champions Against Bullying, an anti-bullying charity organisation in Canada that works with the education system to address bullying and youth violence.
The organisation works with students, educators, parents and communities providing workshops for children as young as two years old, along with their parents and teachers or educators. The workshops for parents outline what it’s like to be a child in the new age of technology, they speak to the frequency and severity of the kind of bullying going on for kids and helps them identify if their child is either a victim or perpetrator.
The NiceBot has sent 152 thousand out to random twitter users with kind words. MiNDFOOD received one this week, much to our delight.
