@one_small_bot

One small step for random words from the dictionary, one giant leap for random words from the dictionary-kind.

This bot won the third place in the January 2016 Monthly Bot Challenge 🤖🏆

@one_small_bot is an open source Twitter bot created by Emma Winston that selects random words and tweets them in the context of Neil Armstrong‘s most famous quote. One small step for bot, one giant leap for botkind.

Author notes:

I’d ultimately like this to work through the list sequentially like @everyword, but can’t get this working in Heroku, I think due to their ephemeral file storage. If anyone has any suggestions on alternatives, please get in touch!

The source code may also be useful as a basic template for a bot to tweet random lines from a text file.
