A couple of months ago, I started experimenting with the Twitter API. My idea was to build a bot to share some digital art I created on my redbubble account by publishing a tweet once or twice a day with a random design and caption.

Once I got it working I thought “maybe more people could benefit from this 🤔” so I started working with @maurogarcia_19 to scale the idea so it will be useful to anyone who wants to share links on Twitter regularly.

Our main concern was that we didn’t want to create a “spam generator”, so we built the idea around the concept of sharing thoughtfully.

That’s how Cephhi 🐙 came to be.

What is Cephhi?

Cephhi is a personal Twitter assistant. You feed him links, ideas and hashtags and he creates tweets regularly without repeating for as long as he can.

How’s Cephhi thoughtful?

As I said before, for us this was the key for this project. We don’t want cephhi to be a simple “bot”🤖 or a “scheduler”. So these are the ideas we’re working on to prevent that:

  • The amount of tweets per day is limited to a maximum of 4.
  • The amount of hashtags per tweet is also limited.
  • It’ll give you tips on how to keep an authentic image online.

We’re working really hard to make Cephhi a tool that encourages a responsible social media usage when sharing our content. We want to help content creators promote their work without replacing the human factor that, we believe, is crucial to stablish a healthy relationship with any audience.

Project status

We launched the landing page a few weeks ago as a mean to communicate and validate the whole idea: cephhi.com

Right now we’re working on an MVP that will be available for free soon 😁.
