Summary: technoloWitch is an automated feminist twitterbot, leveraging the female-centric study of witchcraft, to craft spells that reject and counteract the gender gap in the tech world
Challenge: To design a new narrative around a social justice issue that would be impactful and digestible for the audience involved
Solution: A bite-sized Twitterbot that emphasizes the ridiculousness of the gender gap by "casting" a generative spell using both esoteric and technology-centered words in order to highlight the pain-points of the current situation.
