What is Twitterbot?

Twitterbot/1.0 is a crawler that does not belong to social network Twitter (as is the case with FacebookExternalHit or LinkedInBot). Moreover, the user agent doesn?t provide a domain, making it unknown what the bot does and where it does belong to. A Twitterbot is the name for an automated program that can post on twitter, but, again, it is unknown whether this bot crawls for information in order to tweet it online (probably not).
