COVID Vaccines Twitter bot

PythonTwitter API
Twitter bot that reports daily on the status of vaccination against COVID-19 in Spain.

Motivation

In March 2020 a global pandemic swept the world. Shops closed, bans, mobility restrictions, … Everything we saw happening in science fiction movies was happening in reality.

Fortunately, in December of that same year, the first vaccines began to be administered. This process would become one of the most important mass vaccination plans in the history of humanity. For the same reason, I saw the convenience of developing this bot to keep informed on Twitter about the progress of vaccination in Spain.

Technologies used

  • Python. The bot is developed in Python using some data analysis libraries for predictions.
  • REST DB. NoSQL database service that is used to store some data such as vaccination history.
  • Heroku. For the deployment of the service, Heroku has been chosen.
  • Twitter API. To publish on this social network, it is necessary to have permissions to use the Twitter API.
