Just to add to Elon Musk's displeasure around the amount of Twitter bots, I decided to make another one.
In fact, this happened a while ago, but as the DarkSoulsWisdomBot has just reached 300 followers, I thought I'd write a bit about it.
Essentially, the bot is designed to randomly generate and post tweets constructed from messages players can create in the Dark Souls game series.
It often generates gibberish, but it's fun to watch people confusingly interact with it (the bot will reply if you tweet at it).
The bot is built with the following:
- Firebase Cloud Functions (to generate endpoints - and run a cron job to generate tweets automatically)
- Node - Express (to run handle authentication - don't want people spamming the functions)
- Twitter API v2 (to communicate with the Twitter platform)
But essentially I just watched Fireship's Twitter bot tutorial - check it out!
