Dear Willard, all,

Thank you for a very interesting topic and thread- my own interest in DH
rhetoric -if I may- led to me to create two basic little Twitter bots:

   - https://twitter.com/DHDefined (March 2017)
   - https://twitter.com/WordsDH (January 2018)

Needless to say the source datasets would need constant updating and still
need refining; however over time I find interesting how the isolation and
repetition of phrases, tropes (in DHDefined) and terms, keywords, names
(WordsDH) can provide empirical, serendipitous insights- not only by
decontextualising components of the source corpora but by recontextualising
them in time and textual space within Twitter streams.

My intention creating the bots was in part to call attention on rhetoric
via the effects of repetition-both within the source corpora and in the act
of automated ongoing time-based tweeting.

Best regards,
