Inspired by the current controversy regarding political bots on social media sites such as Facebook, we took on the challenge of analyzing Twitter handles to determine the presence of automated bots.
What it does
Our web extension provides an analysis of Twitter handles to determine whether the user is a bot or just a troll.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
There was some trouble at first with implementing the Twitter API.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of data we scrapped from the Twitter API.
What we learned
We learned how to create an extension and we're pleasantly surprised by how simple it is.
What's next for Bot or Not
Further investigation into machine learning and the mysterious world of Tensor Flow.
