“Groovy has been a big part of my life over the past five years. My friend’s bot was terrible and I made it because I thought I could do better. said
Ammerlaan in an interview with The Verge “I’m not sure why they want to shut down the bot now. To be honest, they don’t even know that themselves.” said. Ammerlaan says Groovy Bot has had a “big load” on his shoulders over the past five years, and he expects such a situation.
