Twitter Bot Info
Hello, I've written some bots on Twitter, all just for fun, and I don't mean to annoy anyone at all. If you say something which triggers a response, and you would like to not have that happen, just contact me here with your Twitter handle, and I'll add you to the block list. You can also just ping me on Twitter if you prefer.
The bots are:
- @DarmokBot which tweets in Tamarian, the language from the Star Trek TNG episode 'Darmok'.
- @PedanticMagick which invents interesting and very specific magic spells.
- @SpaceJamCheck, which monitors the ancient website for Space Jam.
- @mitchc2_ebooks, my own not inspiring ebooks account
- @eachtown which is iterating through every populated place in America.
- @LifehackLifehax which repurposes 'lifehack' content from Twitter and generates random advice. Some of it is pretty good!
- @horoscopish which generates randomish horoscopes just as good as the real ones.
- @happened_today, which tweets out events that happened on this day in history.
- @for_a_dollar, which was triggered by any mention of Robocop. Bixby retired in January 2014.
- @iaminigomontoya @iaminigomontoya, which responds to the word "inconceivable!"
- @Betelgeuse_3, which responds to saying 'beetlejuice' three times.
- @initech_bill, which responds to a number of terms from Office Space
- @mirror_magick, which responds to "mirror mirror on the wall"
How Do I Make My Own Bot?
The code I use is written in Ruby. I've made it into a library called Chatterbot, which is available on Github. Use it for good, not evil.
