My friend Scott posted this article in our Slack the other day, explaining how to build an AI Twitter bot. My first inclination was to make one for our friend, Dave, who has a sizeable Twitter following. The results were pretty amusing.
The following is 100% true: @peruvianidol fed all my tweets into an AI algorithm, which auto generated a bunch of tweets based on my personality.— David Chen (@davechensky) September 2, 2020
Can't really argue with the results. In fact, I'm frightened by them. pic.twitter.com/wO5VCyFxRs
The process is a bit time consuming but not terribly difficult. So of course I decided to try it with my own tweets, or at least the last 15,000 of them. The output seemed to be a mix of verbatim tweets I wrote and the most bizarre, nonsensical strings of text. To be honest, it was hard to tell the difference. Here are some highlights, all of which are extremely on-brand.
