What?

This module has two parts.

markov creates hybrid personalities by mashing people's twitter feeds together. Included in the personas directory are some data to create a Kanye West + Dmitri Medvedev, and a Martha Stewart + Lady Gaga.

app uses markov to generate random tweets by the available personas (you can always add more), and POSTs those tweets to the app you configure it for.

When you run app, it sprays 1000 tweets by default. You can change this with some command line arguments.

Why?

Experimenting with node and mongoose is just too much fun. Like everybody else, I wanted to write a toy microblogging service. And that means I need data to test it. So this gives me some data.

Some Examples

Here are some random tweets by the Kanye West + Medvedev persona:

  • Dmitry Medvedev: Draft agreement on the new iphone??? LOL!!!

  • We need to modernise our economy and the music is unquestionable sooooo.....

  • President Medvedev met with students at the graphics house in Paris designing the type of shit that is nooo way near LOL-able...

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
