Trying to get a bot set up. Does anyone know why posts I make manually might show up properly but those from the API appear in the bot account's timeline but aren't visible from my personal account?

I'm pretty sure it's not posting privately

LB: I Waded in Clear Water and The Annals of the Parrigues are def favorites of mine, but I'm just seeing The League of Extraordinarily Dull Gentlemen now and it's a riot

My hope this year is to make #NaNoGenMo a thing on the fediverse. If you haven't heard of it: it's National Novel Generation Month. The idea is that people try to write code that writes a novel in the month of November.

It occurs during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and like its namesake, it's actually international.

(@hugovk has been admirably running the event for more than half its lifespan and just joined the fediverse!)

I’ve made a small web page cataloguing the generative dictionaries - bots and the like - that I’ve been able to find online, along with some sample output and external links. Take a look!

I was motivated to do this as having released @lyresdictionary (twitter only atm) and planning future projects of this nature, I wanted to examine other existing work in that vein. I hope to keep it up to date so let me know if there's anything that should be added

Includes works by @darius, @mewo2, Greg Borenstein, @mikelynch, Ross Goodwin, Stephanie Hyland, and myself

PORTMANTDOME: TWO WORDS ENTER, ONE WORD LEAVES

Really enjoyed reading The Dream of Doctor Bantam, by Jeanne Thornton. Poignant and bitterly funny.

For my own interest I put together a list of bots I'm aware of on Twitter that create words or dictionary entries: twitter.com/inthescales/lists/

If there are any I missed, on Twitter or here on the fediverse, I'd love to know about them!
