Distraction of the Day: That Can Be My Next Tweet

Penn State students are feeling the academic pressure that comes with the end of the semester and finals week. In our “Distraction of the Day” series, your friends at Onward State hope to inject some semblance of levity into your otherwise stressful journey to mania on the slow boat of insanity.

In today’s Distraction of the Day, we take a look at strange twitter synthesizer That Can Be My Next Tweet!  Not since Action League Now! villain Hodgepodge has there been such a fascinating monster born of random parts.

That Can Be My Next tweet scans through your already existing tweets and uses them to produce new tweets (a warning to those of you with “protected” twitter accounts—it won’t work for you as your 140 characters are hidden behind a wall of shame). Most of the tweets it produces are pretty coherent (for a computer). It’s been a pretty eye-opening experience for me if I’m being honest, seeing that a robot can tweet about the Celtics and Childish Gambino in my voice pretty accurately. Here are some results from my @dennismcnamara account:

  • Brb think i just bought a RealPlayer Media File?
  • Swag swag swag damn i blew that so the Celtics will put you in this class
  • Do Ya Like – me too 8th grade dc trip I’m at 9:30pm tonight. via thank you guys yaaaay!His age, did someone RT’d that lost their neutrality.
  • At IKEA Shanghai, comfortable store lends itself to read this week’s The New Yorker cheers?

Give it a shot yourself.  What else are you going to do, write that paper that’s due Tuesday?
