Felix Apparatus (Latin for “Happy Machine”) is an open source bot made to spread happiness all over the internet! Why not try it out?
How it works
Running on a little Raspberry Pi in a dorm room, Felix Apparatus uses a Node.js server to constantly monitor for direct messages to its twitter account. Upon recieving a message containing a twitter handle, it picks from a list of compliments and tweets a kind, funny, or altogether interesting message to the given handle. Read below to see how you can use Felix Apparatus!
How to use - Sending anonymous compliments
To tweet an anonymous compliment at someone on Twitter, all you need to do is send a DM to @FelixApparatus containing the handle of the Twitter user to tweet at! For example:
Sending a compliment to @astro_pi_vis
Then just wait! In a few moments, an anonymous compliment will be sent to the user of your choice:
The best compliments are the most over the top
And that’s it! Now mind you, there is a usage limit: You may only send a few anonymous compliments per hour,
and only a couple of those may be to the same user. This is to prevent Twitter from marking @FelixApparatus
as a spam-bot.
So go out there and have fun sending compliments to the world!
