Cool… I’m gonna have a look at this… wonder if it is easily converted to Hyves.

Have you ever noticed the bots on Twitter? There are a lot of bots overthere! If you place a tweet regarding coffee (or ‘koffie’ since it’s a Dutch bot), you often get a @reply about coffee by a Tweep called Berend_Botje

Twitter chatbots are interesting indeed and on our wishlist. Jetty has made a first attempt, and a few of them are added to EE with status ‘closed’.

Would you like to spend to time on it?

We might ask Marcus Endicott to assist us. Marcus is a real expert on Twitter bots.
