Nigerian tech developer Dara Oladosu who founded QuotedReplies, a special twitter bot has made Nigerians proud as he got a big job from Twitter after being introduced to their executives.
The announcement of the appointment was made at the tech meetup that was held in Lagos where Jack, the owner of twitter, and other executives were present, TechPoint reports.
In talking about how built the special computer programme, he said in October the bot had a massive 40 million impressions.
One of the executives, Kayvon Beykpour, of the short messaging platform was so impressed with Dara’s work that he offered him a job to come build a feature for twitter.
An excited Dara said he never expected the job, that he had only attended the event with the aim of “figuring out more solutions to questions that other attendees may have.”
“I attended the event with the hopes of figuring out solutions to important questions other attendees might have. I also wanted to have a feel of what it’s like to be around the CEO of Twitter. Things went way better than expected,” he said.
The Nigerian developer is also looking forward to making the bot he created a native feature on the app and contributes “towards making sure that Twitter users, and developers who create software using Twitter’s APIs, get easy access to all the useful information that they might need.”
