What would you like to do?
Trolling twitter for 2-letter handles
require 'httparty'
include HTTParty
('aa'..'zz').select { |r|
sleep 0.20
puts "trying #{r}"
self.class.head("https://twitter.com/#{r}").code == 404
}
# => ['me', 'oh']
# Sadly, 'me' and 'oh' both return 404s, but aren't available. Too bad. I would have enjoyed either one.
