    Great idea. Can’t wait for the LOC to catalog all of them!

    What happens when twitter goes down before all potential tweets are tweeted?

      Thanks. I haven’t heard of when they will actually start the cataloging. It’s been quite a while since the announcement. I guess we’ll have an incomplete set…? We’ll need a few multiverses to help store the data too. I’m slowing working on expanding the site to include a github link to the source and growing list of un-tweetables. I’ve already discovered that some character strings don’t tweet.

    I noticed your TPS has dropped to 1/120 (0.5 TPM). Did you get picked up as a bot? Best update your calcs above ;)

      Ah, yes, caught red-handed. When I get a free moment, I’ll adjust the python script again and change the cron job. Early in the project I didn’t know the lexicon of tweeting and was receiving an email for each failed attempt. Having a new tweet every minute while trying to solve a script error or waking up in the morning to several hundred tweets was not a fun experience. I also had to white-list myself on my spam filter, so that the email would come through. Ultimately, you’re right, I need to get on that.

      Best,

        OK. so, tried increasing TPM to 1 and twitter kicked back saying that I had reached my limit of tweets per day. So, looks like I’ll be staying at a TPM of 0.5.
