* Twitter Bots for Community Building! (or How Do You Know When Someone Wants to go Vegan? Don't Worry, They'll Tweet About It)

I built my first Twitter bot in Node js to help automate a task: giving advice to people interested in being vegan. Simple enough! But even simple bots require love, maintenance, and moderation, to keep them useful, and more importantly, positive! How do you design and code a bot to engage with people in a way that maximizes positive interactions, and minimizes negative ones? I'll tell you what I did.
