A downloadable twitter bot

CLICK ME TO VIEW

This bot was written in order to hook into a much larger project which may or may not see the light of day eventually. For now, it tweets new random galaxies three times a day and provides a pretty image for you to look at with your eyeballs.

It was written in Ruby for the 2016 Fermi Jam. It is not a game by any definition. Source code behind the download button, you will need ruby and the rmagick gem to make it work.

Hey, I have my own galaxy generator and I'd like to hook it up to twitter like you did- how would I do that?
