I am looking for a programmer to develop a twitter bot. With twitter bots, people on twitter send them messages and then they just respond back. For example, if you message some weather bots on twitter a certain statement such as @weatherbot 20001, it will message you back the weather in Washington DC (as 20001 is the zipcode). So we have a list of about 15 services we want our bot to do, such as weather, calculator (some of them are super simple as all you need to do is use google's api that already does weather, calculator) and some are a tiny bit more work but not that programming intensive.
In other words, basically our bot is a mini operating system where messaging it certain commands in a specific format informs the bot of what to do and it does it.
We do not need the actual website built, just the backend. We already have all of the features planned out and the format of the commands. We also have a list of what sites to use to accomplish all of the tasks.
You will need to be familiar with twitter api since you need to be able to extract the messages sent to 1 account and use that account to send messages out.
I think Perl would be a better match for this project than PHP. Both languages can handle regex, but it's a lot prettier in Perl. I have the talent to do this project in either language.
