My friend Erik recently explained Markov Chains to me, especially regarding the ‘ebooks’ Twitter account phenomenon. So of course I had to make my own ebooks bot and feed it a bunch of straight-edge hardcore lyrics.
I tweaked Roger Whitson’s Markov-Tweet Python library to my own liking. The hardest part is getting a large enough corpus so the chains aren’t lifting lines from songs directly. I’ll be adding more lyrics gradually, so the resulting tweets will improve – if you can call more nonsensical lyrics an improvement.
Without further ado, I present @xebooksx.
Here are a few choice tweets as of this post:
Do something! Everyone has their problems but that’s no way to solve them.
