@OnAccidentBot, the Twitter bot that corrects you on purpose
« on: March 21, 2018, 04:14:28 pm »
Recently, as a little exercise, I made a Twitter bot called On Accident Bot, which detects tweets that use the improper phrase "on accident" and corrects them with "by accident".

If anyone wants explanation, clarification, or source code, please don't hesitate to ask!

This is really cool.

I suggest that it should comment on the post instead of retweeting. It would be more noticeable/helpful/annoying to the user who typed it on accident.

Why did you shut it down? Was the stream of incorrect tweets too much for it to handle? :D

These kinds of error-correcting / "grammar nazi" bots are very popular on Reddit. They also seem to get banned from many subreddits, perhaps because many people find the corrections condescending or that they break the flow of conversation. On Twitter it would be different, though, as unlike what happens on Reddit, Twitter threads don't really get to see all the replies listed... so it'd be pretty easy to ignore such bots.

It got restricted from performing write actions by Twitter, meaning I cannot do anything with it. I tried to resolve it...again...but I don't think it's going to get unrestricted. :(

If anyone knows of a way to make this kind of Twitter bot more "Twitter automation rule friendly", let me know!

Twitter kinda hates this when you mass retweet people, this makes you sound like a spambot for them.

I mean, it kinda was a spam bot. But it was a benevolent spam bot.
