Disclaimer: heavy language alert ’cause I’m fucking frustrated with myself tbh fam
Coding ain’t my strong point, but after seeing some sweet AB sources shared on the DIGC202 Subreddit, I decided that creating a Twitterbot could be really fun. A Twitterbot is basically a piece of code which sends out automated data by itself; it Tweets regularly without me having to press a button.
I used an open-source piece of code I found online and, in the true spirit of Mindy, attempted to make it pretty fucked up. My idea was to create this bot as “Mindy’s Ghost”; to continue causing havoc and beastin’ even after her death in season 1. I seriously can’t remember what I added to the code (something along the lines of death and children) but it was savage af.
Mistake #1: IF YOU EVER MAKE A BOT PLEEEASE USE A SEPARATE TWITTER ACCOUNT.
Because, if your bot is as fucked up as Mindy’s was, Twitter will shut it down after like ten hours. And you will lose the ability to post on the account you have spent almost a year building a following for, for your digital artefact. And let me tell you, that sucks ass.
I’ll admit this now, I had no idea how this bot would act, or if it would even work. But it did. So far as I know, it only made one tweet before it was shut down. Maybe there was more, I don’t know.
I don’t know who this guy is, I don’t follow him or anything, but David, if you ever read this I’m sorry :(.
At least he has a sense of humour? I guess there are worse ways to die than dysentery.
