@TorfsBot

@TorfsBot is a Twitter bot created by Thomas Winters.

@TorfsBot imitates the semi-philosophical tweets of the famous Belgian professor Rik Torfs.

It uses a combination of several techniques to achieve these Dutch semi-philosophical tweets in Rik Torfs’s signature style. These techniques include stacked Markov chains of different lengths, automatic template detection and extraction and picking up names and topics from the news.
