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. [more inside]

The Laser Syriacum

A Twitter bot that crawls Tumblr and Flickr for images, learning what tags and authors are good based on feedback on its tweets. Inspired by Archillect, but with a different aesthetic slant. The bot is the main attraction, but you can read more about how and why it came to be here.

dopewars bot for Slack

I built a dopewars bot so that you can play dopewars on Slack, because of course that's a good idea.

Benbot

I built a personal Siri, accessible over the web. It's a work in progress, but I thought I'd share what I've made so far, and how I built it.

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.

Library of Emoji

We all know that many new emoji were recently added to the Unicode standard. What we don't know is what emoji will be added in the years to come. Library of Emoji is a Twitter bot that speculates, several times each day, on what new emoji might appear in future Unicode revisions—emoji that today may seem unreasonable, but someday may be commonplace: COOKWARE SYMBOL. MOUTHPART. PRIAPIC SYMBOL FOR UNICYCLIST WATERLOO. [more inside]

Pizza Clones

You've heard this one: "Every pizza is a personal pizza if you try hard and believe in yourself." Pizza Clones is a Twitter bot that attempts to imitate this joke and elaborate on it, replacing the noun, adjective and condition with stuff it randomly finds on Twitter. Examples: "Every house is an open house unless you have NO pants on"; "Every weekend is a normal weekend if you regret at least one decision"; "Every time is an appropriate time if it wasn't for my aunt Barbara."
