I really like the Twitter account Haggard Hawks and I was recently inspired by this tweet:

To write a small Twitter bot that replies to each tweet by Haggard Hawks with the Scrabble score of that word.

Implementation

The code should be straightforward; in particular, HH capitalizes the word it’s defining in each tweet so you should be able to just match by case in most cases.

Computing the Scrabble score? Funny you might ask about that:

Is a recent little Python code challenge about this.

Until next time,
Thwang!
