This bot was written to win Twitter contests

This is so funny to me. It shows the stupid side of Twitter with its retweet contests and how it can be gamed so easily. Whenever I see retweets like this on my own timeline I always see it as borderline spam -- just another way for the main contest account to get exposure and gain followers.

Well, Hunter Scott automated the process and with a few exceptions to the automated process, he ended up winning quite a lot of stuff. Most of it garbage, but still, he won. I mean, look at all the extra junk he has now that he couldn't live without before!
