The name "tshrdlu" comes from Twitter+SHRDLU.
The @botty_anlp account is now doing some tweeting of its own (by which I mean automated tweeting, based on the code in this repository).
Talking to the bot
The bot should be running as @botty_anlp, feel free to talk to it. Please keep crashes reproducible.
Commands the bot currently understands:
@botty_anlp .* tweets about $keyword like $name $name $name @botty_anlp .* tweets like $name $name $name about $keyword
The order doesn't matter, I didn't want to look it up every time. If the model already exists, it will add the users you provided. Might not give a response the second time because twitter doesn't like posting the same status twice.
@botty_anlp no .* @botty_anlp bad bot .*
As a reply to a tweet that you thing doesn't correspond to the model.
.* so you don't have to delete your own status to avoid the same
problem as above with the same tweet twice.

Setting up oauth
Building the system from source
tshrdlu uses SBT (Simple Build Tool) with a standard directory
structure. To build tshrdlu, type (in the
$ ./build update compile
This will compile the source files and put them in
./target/classes. If this is your first time running it, you will see
messages about Scala being downloaded -- this is fine and
expected. Once that is over, the tshrdlu code will be compiled.
Then you can create the scala model running
$ bin/tshrdlu run tshrdlu.twitter.retweet.ScalaModel
It doesn't exit when it's finished (I didn't bother), so ^C as soon as you read "Got model of None about Set(Scala)" or similar. This will store the model.
Then you can run the bot with
$ bin/tshrdlu bot
./build) to run the bot. This will cause a crash
because the classloader can't find twitter4j.*.StatusJSONImpl. Blame
SBT. Works fine with
bin/tshrdlu. If you still like a repl, try
$ bin/tshrdlu repl
Then copy/paste the following into the repl:
val system = tshrdlu.twitter.retweet.RetweetTester.setup("twitter")
This loads the actor system of the bot and connects it to the
FilterStream from Twitter. If you don't want it to setup the
FilterStream, you can choose
commandLine instead of
