I came across a Twitter feed a year and a half or so ago, that spits out a 19 digit, seemingly random, number every 60 seconds. It stopped for almost a year and then started up again recently (there are too many posts to scroll through to see the exact date). I have never come across or read about another Twitter account like this one. It reminds me of the number stations but it could be anything.. It might even be a regular occurrence that I have just never heard about. twitter.com..., as one user pointed out it has to be a bot, because it posts too often to be a person. Has anyone else come across something like this or know why it might exist?

Sounds like a test program by Twitter

In a RGB color space, hex #873872 is composed of 52.9% red, 22% green and 44.7% blue. Whereas in a CMYK color space, it is composed of 0% cyan, 58.5% magenta, 15.6% yellow and 47.1% black. It has a hue angle of 315.9 degrees, a saturation of 41.4% and a lightness of 37.5%.
So perhaps there is a hipster working at Twitter, callsign... Mr. Purple
