A while ago, I published a Bash script that will open a Twitter search page to show your old tweets from this day of the year. I have enjoyed using it to see what I was thinking about in days gone by.
So I turned this into a Twitter account.
If you follow @your_old_tweets, it’ll tweet a link at you each day that will show you your old tweets from the day. It attempts to send it in the morning (assuming you have your timezone set).
This runs on Amazon Lambda. The code is here.
I enjoy the [Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy](), so I created a [Twitter account]() that tweets links to random articles from it.
I created a Twitter account that tweets a moon emoji each evening representing the current phase of the moon.
I’ve wanted to do this for a while, but Joel Grus’ posts about AWS Lambda inspired me to make it happen.
The code for this is on Github.
I also created a Github project that provides a template for creating Lambda-powered Twitter bots in Python.
