I was inspired recently by a tweet from Claire Carroll:
gonna set up a whole data stack just to:— Claire Carroll (@clairebcarroll) August 6, 2021
- extract data from twitter
- load it into a warehouse
- set up a dbt model that detects when the people I follow stop tweeting at their normal frequency
- uses a "reverse ETL" tool to send a twitter DM that says "u ok?"
I've been looking for an excuse to dig into some technologies that are new to me, and decided to use this as an opportunity for a weekend project.
