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?

Just a thought... someone is using it as a sort of multi-factor authentication. They have a second device on a keychain that also generates a number every 60 seconds, with the same algorithm. If the two numbers match, it's a pass. Keeping one side public could have its uses.

Interesting...Kind of reminds me of the Cold War numbers stations spies and clandestine groups used to use to communicate.

Sounds like a test program by Twitter

The name of the user is #873872

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%.

=purple

So perhaps there is a hipster working at Twitter, callsign... Mr. Purple

Too bad the string is too long. I'd be sourcing it for lotto numbers.
Then again, I'm going to use my blood sugar numbers to play the local Pick 3.

Now that is an interesting coincidence isn't it?

Then again, Q always says....no coincidences.
