Because automation knows no bounds... including lowbrow comedy.
TWSS is a simple Bayes classifer trained off of a Twitter #twss search.
gem install twss
require 'rubygems' require 'twss' TWSS("hey, did you resolve that ticket?") # => false TWSS("not yet, it's taking a while") # => false TWSS("well hurry up, you're not going fast enough") # => true
You can also adjust the scoring threshold for your comedic customization. The lower the value, the more "obscure" the jokes can be.
TWSS.treshold = 2.0
It's far from perfect, but it's accurate enough to be funny. I'll probably continue tweaking it some (increase the training set size and whatnot). I'm not being all that scientific about, so we'll see :).
There's a few mashups I'd like to see:
- IRC bot (obviously)
- Maybe a news feed filter (TWSS in the News, for instance)
For the love of all things good in this world, please don't make a Twitter bot out of this. #ihatetwitterbots
Forks, patches, and tests welcome!
