While testing Tay, Microsoft accidentally re-released the bot on Twitter on March 30, 2016. Able to tweet again, Tay released some drug-related tweets, including “kush! [I’m smoking kush infront the police] 🍂” and “puff puff pass?” However, Tay soon became stuck in a repetitive loop of tweeting “You are too fast, please take a rest”, several times a second. Because these tweets mentioned its own account (@TayandYou) in the process, they appeared in the feeds of 200,000+ Twitter followers, causing annoyance to some.
