Sherman T. Botter: Jason makes a simple twitter bot

Sherman T. Potter

In an homage to one of televisions finest leaders, I humbly introduce Sherman T. Botter. Periodically spitting out a quote from the the 4077th M*A*S*H's veteran leader, this twitter bot is what happens when I get bored.

With the help of Zach Whalen's blog, I was quickly able to configure this bot. His directions are simple to follow. The biggest problem I had was losing the twitter accounts password. If you want to set up a bot, I suggest checking out his scripts!
