Filling Twitter with roses one tweet at a time.
Rambla Rosae is a Twitter bot created by Jose Rubio, Bea Martín, and Álvaro Sandoval that generates images of roses using data from tweets, such as the length of a tweet, the time it was posted, the username, and more.
One of the authors writes on the bot’s origins:
Sant Jordi (April 23th) is a popular holiday in Catalonia (Spain), where is traditional to gift a rose to your loved one. Due to the Coronavirus crisis, this year’s Sant Jordi couldn’t take place on its natural place, the street. So we decided to try and fill Las Ramblas (the most representative street from Barcelona) with roses. We have created more than 20,000 roses, one for every tweet that had the “StJordi20” hashtag.
