Mitt Romney's Tweets, Transformed

A professor at the University of Calgary has created a Twitter account that, with the help of a computer program, generates parodies of Mitt Romney’s tweets. Rightly called @TransforMitt, the program was reportedly a Facebook experiment gone awry. Either way, these tweets are pure comedy.

How it works: “Aycock’s computer-generated tweets replace a few words from Romney’s tweets with a few of its own. Aycock then proofs them, to make sure nothing inappropriate or offensive gets through.” – CBN. Similar to the computer-generated tweets found on @horse_ebooks, but way more coherent and in full sentences. Also, I’d argue, much more relevant in today’s political climate (nothing against low quality e-books about horses).

So why does a Canadian care about poking fun at U.S. politicians? He explains on his website, “Timing. No major elections in Canada right now.”

Let’s compare some of Romney’s most recent tweets, to those generated by @TransforMitt:
