What is the paradise lost bot flock?

The paradise lost bot flock is a flock of 12 twitter bots that each tweet one book of John Milton's epic poem, Paradise Lost.

Why build the paradise lost bot flock?

The paradise lost bot flock was built to help drown out some of the noise on Twitter, and to provide a juxtaposition of classic 17th century English poetry about the fall of Satan and Original Sin with the latest goings-on in the Twitter timeline.
