Building a Twitter Botnet Using Elixir
Last updated on 2018-07-19
About the Book
While being questionable at first glance, it's the perfect project for the scalable, fault-tolerant and functional programming language named Elixir.
This book covers two main topics:
The first topic is the backend that controls our fleet of Twitter accounts. It lets us control all accounts at once or each account individually.
The second topic focuses on hiding our botnet so it's not so easy to detect by neither normal users nor Twitter itself.
Prerequisites and what is not covered:
This book does not teach you Elixir itself and is aimed at intermediate Elixir developers. You should also have some basic understanding of OAuth, the Twitter API and modern web techniques (HTML, CSS, JS).
