Using GPT-2 to generate Tweets

Last summer I blogged about using a Deep Neural Network to generate tweets but only used 3200 of my tweets.

Since then I've used Twitter's archive mechanism to retrieve ALL my tweets (just over 30,000) to train a network. Not any old network - the GPT-2 model from OpenAI. This 'finetuning' of an existing synthetic text generation model makes for very interesting tweets that have never been tweeted before but look as they might have.

Humans find the text of GPT-2 convincing. The output is much better than previously but my 'voice' does not seem to be there. The tweets are a strange mixture of all my historical tweet topics - diabetes, science, medicine, NHS, coding, beer, photos of Cornwall.

Posted one particularly intriguing one on LinkedIn.
"Research is the engine of health, and evidence is the medium the NHS needs to grow."

Hospitals are better placed to provide the services they are capable of providing.

I’m at the fringes of the last mile of care but every time I see someone with a few weeks to live I think of all the people I’ve lost to dementia.
