A bot created in 2013 by Colin Rothfels, Anagramatron crawls Twitter in order to find tweets that are, by chance, anagrams of each other. Unrelated, but algorithmically compatible, the resulting pairs of random thoughts synchronized by a machine often result in otherworldly poetry. Here and there, they fit together oddly well. Sometimes, they directly contradict each other. At other times, they are just plain funny.

However, most tweets the script finds are identical, or differ only very slightly from another. This means that everything Anagramatron finds is still filtered out manually, and only anagrams with substantially different content get retweeted on Anagramatron's page. They typically add up to around 5-10 pairs of tweets per day.

Here are some of my favorites from the first few hundred entries:
