Saturday, September 10th: Learn How to Build a Twitter Bot

Build a Twitter Bot
Flux Factory (39-31 29th St., Queens)
2-6pm
Free, RSVP required: christina[at]fluxfactory[dot]org

Novelty Twitter accounts are all the rage, netting book deals and even prime time TV shows. The only thing better than a novelty Twitter account is one you don’t have to update yourself. In this Twitter bot-building workshop, Flux Artist-in-Residence Jason Eppink will teach students how to make an automatic Twitter feed to be used for good…or evil. Students should bring a laptop and a basic knowledge of programming.
