AboutDGR embodies a social demographic as a actor on social media platform.
The purpose of the DGR software is to demonstrate a broad or precise demographic to develop novel graphic characters by replication of other microblogging users short form publishing.
DGR siblings (DGRS) do not explicitly state their emotions, rather, they allude to empathising with other actors on the same or compatible (micro)blogging platform.
The DGRS are not self aware but they are based in real-time messaging.
It is designed to post to (micro)blogging platforms, such as Twitter, Friendfeed or Identica.
FunctionalityWorking with the API from We Feel Fine, the DGR config file informs a series of 'Re-Posting' though the DGR's (micro)blogging account.
The DGRS .ymal config file requires an api query identifying the gender, location and age of the demographic you wish to trace.
The API returns an 'emotion' (happy, sad, crazy, calm) which is matched to actions or objects, acting as the search parameters for querying a (micro)blogging's API.
Once a suitable matching 'Tweet' is found, the 'Tweet' is 'Retweeted' through the DGRS (micro)blogging account.
Further, times can be set to simulate routines and rituals (Commute, shopping, meals).
To ensure the DGRS finds a demographic based upon a triggered event, default personal traits (smoking, drinking, running, painting) can be set.
Global timing is set by your operating system.
Automated, list based, responses can be triggered by addressing the DGRS using the (micro)blogging local syntax (@).
ExtendingTwitter's use of OAuth could enable the DGRS to integrate with many other 3rd party services such as Fireeagle and Dopplr. Use of such services can deepen the characters identity. These would have to be manually set up.
The program is capable of running many DGRS, specifications of your hardware will define volume.
