The ethics of how a Machine Learning (ML) or an Artificially Intelligent (AI) system is to function is a common thought that arises when we read about significant advancements in those fields.

Popularity on Twitter was never intended to be what it is right now (an app hosted on Heroku).
It started out as a weekend project to help me learn Python and APIs.
I previously had little knowledge of Python and knew nothing about APIs.

Why 7 heroes and not a solid number like 5 or 10?
Well, 7 is a magical number possessing the power of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey…
