Web archiving for bots
From the explanatory post: I’ve made several bots over the years. They’re mostly Twitter bots. Some of them are throwaway larks, and some of them only work in the moment. If Twitter becomes too harmful to humanity to gift with free content, I’m OK with letting those go. However, there are many bots whose fate I want to keep in my own hands, rather than Twitter’s. To that end, I built a static site updater.

So this lets you...hold onto your bots?

How did you build the bots in the first place? I see the content (have a soft spot for Fucking Shakespeare in particular), but not the process.

Unfortunately, I don't have any writeups on the process, but if you are into source code, you can search for any of them on this page to see that. The core of Fucking Shakespeare is in this module.

I was guessing there was a Markov chain aspect but this is better quality and more crafted. Nifty! Thank you for sharing!
