The Make-A-Twitter-Bot Workshop
Friday, May 1
4pm – 5:30pm
Room 50
Session led by ITP adjunct and Something-In-Residence, Allison Parrish
The semester’s nearly over, and your final projects are nearly done. Why not take the results of all that hard work and turn it into a Twitter bot? Twitter bots are a great way to experiment with how artifacts from your project look and feel in the context of social media, and they’re also an interesting and offbeat way to increase your project’s visibility. Come to this workshop with some raw material—a text file, a generative algorithm or even just a directory full of images—and leave with a working Twitter bot. Code examples will be given in Python and Javascript, and we’ll even cover a method for making Twitter bots that lives entirely on Google Sheets—no programming required!

* Event is limited to ITP students only.
