These two bots use Markov chain generators to produce tweets, but distinguish themselves from other bots by responding to input from those who interact with them via Twitter. (Click on the images below to visit their pages).
“Markov Chain Me” is like a curved mirror that shows you a generated version of your Twitter identity. This is a fascinating way to analyze your own writing, getting a sense of what you’re likely to tweet about. Even better, you can direct it to analyze someone else’s tweets by using the phrase “do @——.” Hopefully my request that it “do” itself doesn’t cause it (or Twitter) to somehow implode. The response time is fairly quick and recognizable: one can sense the original voice in that tweet, which is part of what is so fascinating about the method.
