“Twitter Workshop”: Build Your Own Digital Humanities Twitter Bot {no coding experience required}


You may have heard about those "twitter bots" that are to blame for sowing discord and false information during the 2016 election. They're small automated programs that usually spam users or scrape data from pages, and engage in other nefarious activities. But did you know that there are many creative bots that help contribute to the broader culture of the internet, digital humanities, and yes, even Jewish librarianship? Join us at this informal gathering with a link to your favorite digital Judaica collection, and leave (hopefully) having created a twitter bot that showcases it to the world.
