Guided By Voices song title bot (@favoriteGBVsong)

My first Twitter bot project! I trained a Markov chain generator on ~2500 Guided By Voices / Robert Pollard song & record titles, and set it loose to generate fairly believable GBV song names. Song titles from the wonderful Guided By Voices Database.

@Dilbert_ebooks

Yet another twitter bot. I did this as a web project a long time ago, and turned it into a twitter bot to see how difficult it would be to write one of those. (Answer: about 15 lines of shell for the comic assembly and 10 lines of python to post to twitter.) It generates and posts a new randomly-assembled comic strip every eight hours.

Demake Bot

It's another Twitter bot! This one "demakes" images, meaning it makes pixelated, low-res versions of images. It works on its own schedule but will also take requests from mutual followers.

@RandomDuets

Every few hours, this Twitterbot picks two random artists, then pairs them up with a random song to cover. The result is a randomly generated duet that doesn't exist...but totally should.

Link finding things

Doo doo doo! This is Link finding things on the web and holding them up for you to see, as he does! Except he's doing it on Twitter instead of your NES, which doesn't even work unless you hold in the cartridge a certain way.

A Twitter bot that draws your code

@dupdupdraw is a Twitter bot that tries to make up programs to draw things on its own and also draws what you tweet at it. Look at the favorites for a quick Best Of, or read a quick intro or the more thorough README. All programs are valid, and the worst that can happen is you get a random solid color.

Global Voices - News About Japan

Since September 2014 I have contributed stories about Japan as Global Voices' Japan Editor. I report on what Japanese people are actually saying about the news on Twitter, in blogs, and on 2chan (somewhat similar to Reddit). Often I can find eyewitness accounts (in Japanese) to what's happening in the news, sometimes even scooping Western news outlets. It's all about presenting an authentic, slightly quirky take on current events in Japan.

Twicery: Twitter keyword monitoring

A user on Quora asked "Are there any free or cheap tools that would enable me to monitor a keyword and be notified whenever somebody over a certain follower threshold (say, 100,000) used it in a tweet?" I thought it was a great idea, so I built it. Specify Twitter keywords, set a minimum follower count, and receive an email when a suitably popular account tweets about it. You can also exclude retweets and filter out chosen accounts.
