COMMENTS

Iterates of the mapping, starting with 00:
00
1000
001000
1000001000
0010001000001000
10000010000010001000001000
001000100000100010000010000010001000001000
The 1limiting word is the limit of the nth iterates for n == 1 mod 2.
The number of letters (0's and 1's) in the nth iterate is given by 2*F(n+2) for n >= 0, where F = A000045 (Fibonacci numbers), as follows from the observation that this sequence is the {0>00, 1>10}transform of the mapping 0>10, 1>0; see the Example section.

EXAMPLE

The first three nth iterates for n == 1 (mod 3) are
1000
1000001000
10000010000010001000001000
Regarding the connection to Fibonacci numbers mentioned in Comments, iterates of the morphism 0>10, 1>0, starting with 0th iterate 0, are
0
10
010
10010
01010010
1001001010010
where the length of the nth iterate is F(n+2). The {0>00, 1>10}transform of the iterates is then 00, 1000, 001000, ..., as indicated in Comments.

s = {0, 0}; w[0] = StringJoin[Map[ToString, s]];
w[n_] := StringReplace[w[n  1], {"00" > "1000", "10" > "00"}]

st = ToCharacterCode[w[9]]  48 (* A288711 *)
Flatten[Position[st, 0]] (* A288712 *)
