Because automation knows no bounds... including lowbrow comedy.

TWSS is a simple Bayes classifer trained off of a Twitter #twss search.


gem install twss


require 'rubygems'
require 'twss'
TWSS("hey, did you resolve that ticket?") # => false
TWSS("not yet, it's taking a while") # => false
TWSS("well hurry up, you're not going fast enough") # => true

You can also adjust the scoring threshold for your comedic customization. The lower the value, the more "obscure" the jokes can be.

TWSS.treshold = 2.0

It's far from perfect, but it's accurate enough to be funny. I'll probably continue tweaking it some (increase the training set size and whatnot). I'm not being all that scientific about, so we'll see :).


There aren't any, other than to laugh.

I made twssbot which is a TWSS IRC bot that uses twss and isaac

I'd love to see some other random applications of twss, but not a twitter bot. For the love of all things good in this world, please don't make a Twitter bot out of this. #ihatetwitterbots

Forks, patches, and tests welcome!

Have fun!
