@grammer_man is the best troll

…decided to write a little twitter bot. There he is above. His name is Grammer_Man and he corrects other twitter users’ misspellings, using data scraped from these Wikipedia pages. … You can see who’s responding at the moment by searching for @grammer_man.” (aengus)

It is worth checking out the reactions of the victims. Most of them have no idea that they reply to a bot :))))
