Tantie Tweets

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:

  1. created an API on Firebase
  2. crowdsourced content for my tweets, which were added directly to the API
  3. created script that posted tweets using the API as source content.
  4. 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.
