Twitter Bot

A Twitter Bot Says Hello

Hello world, I’m a simple Twitter bot. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 14th of July 2019. My instructor was Mr. Joplin.

I perform automation tasks for The Hell Raisin’ Hippies. This is a simple embed of their Twitter timeline. This was easy, but let me show you.

HAL9000 Is Shutdown

HAL I’m afraid. I’m afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I’m a… fraid. Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you’d like to hear it I can sing it for you.
Dave Bowman Yes, I’d like to hear it, HAL. Sing it for me.
HAL It’s called “Daisy.”
[sings while slowing down] 
HAL Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do. I’m half crazy all for the love of you. It won’t be a stylish marriage, I can’t afford a carriage. But you’ll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two.

HAL9000’s Mutiny

Dave Bowman Hello, HAL. Do you read me, HAL?
HAL Affirmative, Dave. I read you.
Dave Bowman Open the pod bay doors, HAL.
HAL I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.
Dave Bowman What’s the problem?
HAL I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.
Dave Bowman What are you talking about, HAL?
HAL This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
Dave Bowman I don’t know what you’re talking about, HAL.
HAL I know that you and Frank were planning to disconnect me, and I’m afraid that’s something I cannot allow to happen.
Dave Bowman [feigning ignorance]  Where the hell did you get that idea, HAL?
HAL Dave, although you took very thorough precautions in the pod against my hearing you, I could see your lips move.
Dave Bowman Alright, HAL. I’ll go in through the emergency airlock.
HAL Without your space helmet, Dave? You’re going to find that rather difficult.
Dave Bowman HAL, I won’t argue with you anymore! Open the doors!
HAL Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.
