I replied to all my Tweets in my timeline using ChatGPT.
By writing a connector between ChatGPT and Twitter, I was able to reply to every tweet in my timeline with only bot responses. With the help of the Selenium web driver, I was able to control a web browser and interact with ChatGPT without using any API.

Elon Musk has his work cut out for him – will we have to solve a captcha for every tweet we write in the future?
