I recently activated the latest Twitterbot (5th in the quotebot series), running off the Raspberry Pi in my closet. Say hello to @maewestbot.

She’s only got 4 followers, so far and 1 of them is me, but every rising star has to start somewhere,

Her zingers such as “Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?” have mutated in various forms (banana, cellphone, harmonica, dropper post, etc).
