Making Twitter Bots with Tracery

Made a bunch of bots with Tracery. The process is quite simple:

  1. Go to Tracery Writer and write stuff in Tracery. Tracery is basically a JSON kind of thing, see tutorials here.
  2. Once you are satisfied with the tweets, make a new twitter account for your bot (new gmail too). Add a phone number so the bot does not get blocked by Twitter. Then go to cheapbotsdonequick.com and login with your newly created Twitter account.
  3. Copy paste the Tracery code and you are done!

Here are some bits that I created:
