Mk Mrc Grt Gn! A Disemvoweling Twitter Bot

Inspired by a tweet from (metafilter's own) Maciej Cegłowski, I made a dumb Twitter bot using Glitch one night that disemvowels 45's mouthspew on Twitter as if he were a dumb troll trying his best to annoy the mods. The resulting tweets are collected at @Dsmvwld_PTS. [more inside]

In this episode, Trent weighs in on the Ghost in the Shell controversy, the Vice President's rule about dining alone with women, and your search history being up for sale. WARNING: "Mature" language.

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.

@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.

Odd Vice

I made a thing that tweets weird mashed-up VICE headlines. Some of them are funny I think, if you're familiar with VICE.

Twitter-based Pluto "Facts"

In commemoration of the impending flyby of Pluto by the New Horizons mission, I have created a twitter account, inspired by other such "fact" oriented accounts as @CatTipps, @FactsAboutEggs. Will publish a fact or two about Pluto every day up through the NASA flyby, or as long as the inspiration lasts.

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]

Egress Methods

Paul Simon claimed that there must be fifty ways to leave your lover, but in his famous song he named far fewer than that. Egress Methods, a twitter bot, fulfills the promise that Mr. Simon could not—and then some—tweeting a randomly generated formula for lover-leaving every few hours, from now into eternity.

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."

Twitov, a generative text bot based on your Twitter history

Twitov takes the Twitter history file some lucky folks have been given access to (Twitter says: Rolling it out "slowly" to everyone) and turns it into the brain for a Markov chatterbot. The results are slightly deranged and slightly stupid, but sometimes pretty funny. [more inside]

Heathrow Facts

Future Earth's surviving bacteria colonizing Heathrow Terminal 5. A superior airport experience. A place to replicate & escape the heat.
So: a parody London Heathrow Twitter account, tweeting from an alternate, slightly less benign universe. Learn about Heathrow's sinister cosmic plans for expansion, upcoming Christmas specials, and the airport's occult connections with Ancient Egypt. Brought to you by that 0430 British Airways flight that swoops low over my house every morning and wakes me up.

Click and click again to generate random new years resolutions for 2011, based on a corpus of tweets collected yesterday and today. Sometimes nonsensical, sometimes absurd, sometimes even plausible.
