When Bots Get Busy
A couple of days ago, the Mayor of Detroit tweeted about RoboCop.
@MT There are not any plans to erect a statue to Robocop.Thank you for the suggestion.— Mayor Dave Bing (@mayordavebing) February 7, 2011
Naturally, my RoboCop bot, since it always replies to tweets about RoboCop, responded:
@mayordavebing I'd buy that for a dollar!— Bixby Snyder (@for_a_dollar) February 7, 2011
This was a hugely popular topic on Twitter, so much so that the bot sent out over 8500 tweets in 3 days. That's insane! Anyway, as it happens, I've been tracking the tweets I send out, and at the start of the year I finally started putting the data into a database, so I could do some metrics. So now I have some charts of the last 30 days of my twitter bots.
