Persona 5 Spoiler Bots
When Persona 5 first released, Atlus was so gung-ho about preventing spoilers from leaking that it actually threatened content creators and streamers with account suspensions.

This resulted in the official Persona 5 Twitter receiving spoilers every time “#Persona5” was used. Ah, justice.
