There has been an upsurge in conference twitter bots arising to promote conferences and I plan on investigating the efficacy of these further. In this session I will explore interfacing with the Twitter API, perform multiple types of sentiment analysis on Twitter content, and demonstrate how machine learning can predict whether an account is a bot and what that bot or person might say through wordwalking. I will primarily focus on tweets pertaining to technology conferences, and will include @TomTom and #AMLCville hashtags as examples.
