Content Warning: Some NSFW bot language
I recently trained a Twitter bot with a recurrent neural network (RNN) to tell question-answer jokes. Once in a blue moon, it would say something amusing. But most of the time -- a startlingly high percentage of the time -- it would say something bizarre and offensive. So, I had to kill it.
@ShowdownBot is a generative Twitter bot using Tracery, built on Glitch.
I recently made a few similar bots with Tracery -- @WordsofMcCarthy and @StinkpieceBot -- with the aid of Cheap Bots, Done Quick. This time around, I wanted to open up the hood, tinker around with the code, and experiment with Glitch as a botmaking platform.
