Tech vlogger Michael Reeves doesn’t know much about interior design, so he’s letting his followers decorate his room for him. 

“The reason it’s so empty and boring and looks like the purgatory realm between life and death is because I don’t know how to decorate anything,” the 21-year-old programmer said. “I could ask friends for help, or talk to an interior decorator, but that’s social interaction and I don’t support it.” 

Instead, he created a Twitter bot to do it for him. When followers replied to his tweet with Amazon links, the bot found the most liked replies and automatically bought it — as long as the item cost less than $25. Reeves had no idea what the bot bought and delivered for 24 hours. 

“I don’t really know how to decorate, so I’m counting on you guys to send me some good stuff,” Reeves continued in the video. “I trust you.” 

His tweet went viral, but did the internet pull through? 

Here’s what the bot purchased.

It started out innocent enough, with some fun house plants.
