Fully-automated Twitterbot imitating Rik Torfs
Trained on his tweets & columns
Launched in 2016
Algorithm 1: Markov Chain (Interpolated 35-gram)
1. Counts frequency of word after previous words
in tweets & columns van Rik Torfs
“gevolgd door”
4: een
2: zijn
1: iemand
1: acht
Beste,
2. Takes start words and repeatedly predicts
Algorithm 2: Dynamic template
1. Take random tweet and a random column lines
2. Change tweet key words with words from
column with same part-of-speech
Markov chain 35% more interactions
than dynamic template
(17K interactions on 8K tweets over from June 2017 to June 2023)
Previous work: Winters, T. (2019).Generating PhilosophicalStatements using InterpolatedMarkovModels and Dynamic Templates.
31st EuropeanSummer Schoolin Logic, Language and InformationStudent Session Proceedings, 181–189.
Funny fail?
Believable parody?
Tweets daily poll with random tweet from either Rik Torfs or TorfsBot
602 polls
47K votes total (avg 79/poll)
71% correct votes
87% correct majority
68 TorfsBot success
12 Rik Torfs fails
TorfsBot or Not? Evaluating User Perception on Imitative Text Generation (CLIN33)
TorfsBot or Not? Evaluating User Perception on Imitative Text Generation (CLIN33)
Slightly positively
correlated
(0.11 for log(interactions) with %votes)
Little difference
between algorithms
More interactions
~ more believable
Weirdly more so
for Rik than bot
