Why Not Visit DC

June 2017

Using this great corpus and a bunch of javascript, I created @whynotvisitdc, a twitter bot that attempts to replicate the why not visit meme but applied to the new administration instead of forest creatures and aquatic life.

The source code is on github here. In docker containers, it uses bing search (I know) to find the images, a bunch of hacky randomness and the corpus to generate the captions, runs node-cairo to generate the post images, and finally posts it all to twitter.

The possible values for the grid are: Donald Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Mike Pence, Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Rex Tillerson, Sebastian Gorka, Jeff Sessions, and Washington DC.
