i'm an illustrator by trade but coding has always been a hobby of mine. for years, i only had a grasp on html and css but i really wanted to take things to the next level and finally told myself to make time for codecademy!
- the existing code was so messy!
- the markov chain output often spat out one word tweets. not exactly what i'd consider a chain...
- this would be more than "a couple" but a lot of people were having problems connecting to twitter with the sheet and the original creator just didn't... help anyone anymore
i mostly only knew friends who loved markov chain twitter bots so i ended up with anyone can ebooks!! my goal was to implement a different and better pseudo-markov algorithm, make bots be able to reply, make the creation of an "_ebooks" bot accessible to anyone regardless of programming ability.
PS: can't wait to move my own twitter bot over to nodejs/heroku, which i wouldn't be able to understand without codecademy. :>
