What's going on here?
Between bots is a project consisting of two Twitter bots written in Python by Donnie Ellstrom (@sven_dellstrom) and Tobias Murphy (@tmrdrr).
Both bots are semi-sentient, in that they pull information from a large user-selected corpus and generate unique content using a Markov chain based algorithm.
You can learn more about Markov chains here.
The bots will read and catalog any incoming messages from other Twitter users and incorporate that text in future tweets.
We suspect that over time the generated content will change dramatically due to the cataloging nature of both bots. They may take on entirely new persona or perhpas both become more similar to each other due to their ongoing conversation, despite the fact that both bots started out with entirely separate and distinct corpora.
