My Robot Returns
I missed the 2 year birthday of my Twitter robot, Thinglesbot. He turned 2 on March 11. He was limping along though having lost connections to various sensors in the house and became a bit uninteresting. I finally took a little time tonight to get him wired up again.
Happily he now breaths Ruby with the Twitter4R library instead of Bash scripts and Curl. So much nicer to read. He still keeps everyone updated about the temperatures outside and inside the house. However, he now has a couple of new features that are just for fun. If you follow him you may get picked as his favorite follower some day, and he likes to share a favorite number, color or letter each day.
Thinglesbot’s followers fell off a lot when he went silent for months. We’ll see if they pick up again. He currently has 18 followers.
