For a bit of a laugh, I made a Twitter bot today. Not just any old bot, it’s a crime fighting bot bringing your criminals to justice.

What’s a your criminal? You know, people who don’t know when to use “you’re” instead of “your”.

The idea was inspired by the athiest bot, which cracked me up when I first saw it. I made this one using the python-twitter wrapper, and it’s surprisingly easy to get a simple little automated Twitter thingy happening.

Basically, it searches for people misspelling “you’re”, then retweets their crime with a friendly suggestion of how they should spell it. Here’s some of the tweets it generated before the account was suspended for unsolicited tweeting 😛
