So, as class work got more busy, the inevitable happened: I stopped writing about it. So what happened?
Well, after cutting teeth on getting our Bieber bot going, the real project began. It is described in more detail here but the idea was each group in the class would create a twitter bot persona that was based in Boston and gain followers. The goal in the end was to try to create a trending topic by all tweeting about fictitious banksy artwork appearing on Boston monuments.
