Some of my new projects are social bots on twitter. They follow a simple idea: Contribute to the twitter experience in a nice way. My social bots are written in the Java Programming Language and available as open source software on github.com.

Twitter Zodiac Bot

The Twitter Zodiac Bot was inspired by @year_progress, which shows you a progress bar of the current year. My zodiac bot will do the same thing for zodiac signs. The first day of capricorn, it will show a 0 % progress bar, while at its last day it will go up to almost 100 %.
