When you are on social networks, it usually matters a lot how others see you.. unless you are antisocial (which would be inconsistent) or own one. But how do you know if others don’t tell you? Well, maybe artificial intelligence (and lately, who says ‘AI’ says ‘ChatGPT’) can also help in that field.
Jordi Martí is a software developer from Bilbao who a few days ago decided to launch a simple web service called Abbrevia.me that offers exactly that: ‘abbreviate’ a user’s Twitter account to answer in a few words what image it projects to othersvaluing both subjective aspects (‘projects an image of humility’) and objectives (‘talks about issues related to artificial intelligence’).
And it does so by having ChatGPT ‘read’ the tweets posted by the user in question. He must be doing pretty well, because over the course of this weekend his popularity has started to skyrocket.. And many users are more than satisfied with the analysis it does, of themselves or of one of their contacts.

The incredible advances of artificial intelligence!!!
Yesterday I got this page: https://t.co/RD1VfEQWtj
That only entering the profile of the users makes us a fairly accurate description.

A project that does not lack contributors
According to Jordi Martí himself on Twitter, the new API allows each ‘abbreviated’ user to get you $0.006. That allowed him to serve 3,071 requests on Saturday, with an expense of only 18 euros. Yesterday afternoon, however, things got a bit out of hand and it was already reaching 20,000 queries.
Finally, on Sunday he spent a total of 250 euros, which translates into approximately 43,000 queries. Fortunately, the support of 46 users via crowdfunding has allowed it to cover that expense… and, for now, it has already obtained a sponsor, the Spanish startup Manfred, which we have already talked about on occasion.
So, for now, your tool You just have to worry about Twitter’s ‘rate limit’, which limits queries to 1,500 requests every 15 minutes.. “And there’s not much else to do (I understand that except pay, of course)”, Explain Marti.
As published by Cadena Ser, the idea of creating this tool came to Martí after learning of the existence of ChatGPT and beginning to reflect on the possible security gaps of this technology. Could an AI use someone’s Twitter activity to find out where a person lives or what ideology they hold?
Without intending to go that far, he realized that the generation of a more or less reliable robot portrait it was something that did seem to be within the reach of ChatGPT.
At 10 in the morning today, it was already going through 23,648 queries, by the way. It is clear that people want to know how they see it. We, on the other hand, wanted to know how ChatGPT sees Elon Musk:
