Accidental Poetry from the TiffanyBot

Back in October/November 2013, there was a sudden influx on my Facebook news feed of What Would I Say? status messages. Basically, the robot version of yourself uses your past post history to generate new status messages using a bigram and unigram probabilities-based Markov-model.

It seems that instead of posting my bot-self’s status messages at the time, I saved them for posterity as an email draft (that I just now found). And you know, TiffBot can be rather poetic — albeit by accident.

Found the hiccups.

I strongly suspect TiffanyBot has a better chance than real Tiffany at getting poetry published…
