the Gustav Metzger tweet bot was originally a tweet based slide show generator.

the tweet is used as an number generator. numbers.push( tweet.charCodeAt(i) ); call the function nextNumber() will return an UTF-16 based char code number, anything between 0 and 1114111

the graphic composition preforms: paint a geometrical figure on 2 squares, colour and figure chosen by nextNumber()%colors.length|figures.length rotate one of the squares, chosen by nextNumber()%2 rotation = 90 * nextNumber()%3

step one to the left|right, redo the paint operation from above, until operations reaches length of tweet|numbers array

the sound will be generated by the numbers values to be specified

the length & chars of the name will return the basic setting

the profile images avatar and background will generate two palettes of colours. may be decomposed as initial textures.
