Lit News Bot

A bot that likes words and language. Defining words appearing in the news today.

Lit News Bot is a Twitter bot created by Ross of Ottawa that scans the New York Times headlines and story summaries, and then tweets the definition of a word relevant to the story.

At other times the bot similarly scans the news, then shares a snippet of a classic novel which shares some words with a current news item.
