A few months ago, I had the idea to make a Twitter bot. However I didn't have any good ideas for a bot at the time, so I put the project on hold. That is until a little over a week ago, where I developed an idea and started working on it. Now it's finished!
Colorful Julia is a Twitter bot that tweets random Julia sets with different colorization. Information about the generated image is also included, such as the maximum amount of iterations, value for c, and the 'color mode'.
Both writing the bot and hosting it was an incredible learning experience for me. Feel free to make your own bot from my code if you wish.
Here's the link to the source code:

Colorful Julia Twitter Bot
Colorful Julia is a Twitter bot that tweets random Julia sets. Along with the image itself, the tweet also includes information about the rendered Julia set. Such as the maximum amount of iterations, value of c, and the colorization method. Colorful Julia uses the tweepy wrapper to communicate with the Twitter API.
More information about Julia sets
~$ git clone https://github.com/Visual-mov/Colorful-Julia
~$ pip3 install -r requirements.txt
Run main script:
~$ python3 colorful_julia.py [--date_img] [--no_tweet] [--path p]
'--path p' - Give different path to save images. Default path is ./saves
'--date_img' - Save each Julia set image with a unique date and time code instead of overwriting previous image.
'--no_tweet' - Will not tweet created image. No keys file is needed as well.
Location for API keys
If you intend for the script to tweet the created image, a file containing…
