For my Programming A to Z final, I decided to expand upon my twitter bot class assignment. Previously, I created a twitter bot using Allison Parrish’s google spreadsheet format. Here, the tweets were composed, added to a spreadsheet and instructions given to tweet at intervals. For my final I:
- created an API on Firebase
- crowdsourced content for my tweets, which were added directly to the API
- created script that posted tweets using the API as source content.
- hosted the app on Heroku
Tantie Tweets inspired my thesis. I had to create an API since I could not find a suitable repository for the dialect anywhere online. For my thesis, I will create an API of the language as well as a web platform that teaches the language of the islands through its history.
