Anagramatron Bot Finds And Retweets Twitter Anagrams

Ever heard of an anagram? If you need a refresher, it’s a word, phrase, or name formed by rearranging the letters of another.

Think “dormitory: dirty room”; “Clint Eastwood: Old West action”; and “listen:silent.”

Developer Colin Rothfels noticed the frequency of unintentional anagrammatic tweets on Twitter, and developed a bot called Anagramatron that finds and retweets Twitter anagrams.

The account works by finding a pair of tweets that inadvertently uses the same letters, and retweeting each.

Example 1:

Example 2:

Example 3:

Rothfels also created an Anagramatron Tumblr that compiles all the anagrammatic tweets the bot discovers.

What’s your favorite anagram you’ve seen on Twitter?
