This is a Twitter bot that re-posts tweets it finds beginning with the phrase “I just want…” It then pulls the nouns from the message, and uses those words to search Flickr for a matching image, sharing its results @theDesireBot.

This is my first ever Twitter bot. Not only was this a super fun project to work on, I learned a tremendous amount along the way. I got the opportunity to work with the command line more, with GitHub more, and with Heroku for the first time. And I discovered the awesomeness that is Wordnik!

I have a more detailed write-up about the mechanics in this blog post.
