After You Die, What Happens To Your Digital Life?
It's up to your friends and family to make sure a sexbot doesn't take over your social media accounts.By Leah Becerra | May 21, 2016
Your social media accounts will probably outlive you, so what happens to them after you die? It depends.
Recently a former New York Times columnist's Twitter account was hijacked by a sexbot. But the writer, David Carr, couldn't really do much about it, seeing as he died in 2015.
A handful of Carr's followers realized the account had been taken over and Twitter righted the problem soon after. But if Carr hadn't been such a high-profile person, things might've gone differently.
