Coding Twitterbots with Middle School Students

giphy5My 7th and 8th grade Information Technology classes have been coding Twitterbots as an introduction to Javascript JSON programming. A bot is an automated program that performs a function on the internet like indexing webpages or sorting email. A Twitterbot is a software program that automatically posts to Twitter. Each of our bots is programmed to tweet a new, randomly-generated message every 10 minutes.

Here is the complete list of bots that we created this week:
BookTitleBot by the 7th & 8th Graders
