Twitter suspended a bot account that tried to screw up the daily secret word for Wordle. Automated Twitter bot called “The Wordlinator” was commenting on Wordle’s Twitter posts with rude messages, including the word Wordle the next day. Wordle is a trending online game that challenges players to guess a five-letter word in six tries. It makes only one round available to all users every 24 hours. Players can notify others on social media how many tries it took to correctly guess a word by sharing a scorecard, without revealing the correct word.

Twitter banned a user named The Wordlinator (@wordlinator) who purposely commented on Wordle-related Twitter posts with spoilers for tomorrow’s game. The account is no longer accessible now. The page says it was suspended for violating Twitter rules.

according to one report by GameSpot, the account appeared shortly after software engineer Robert Reichel posted that he had reverse-engineered Wordle for the daily answers. On January 9, Robert Reichel noted in his blog that he had reverse-engineered the game to predict the next day’s word before it went live. According to the blog, Wordle uses a client-side date-based algorithm to determine which word to use in a static word list. In the blog post, he explains the encryption of the game’s source code for Wordle’s daily answers.

Developed by a Brooklyn software engineer named Josh Wardle, Wordle asks players to figure out a five-letter word in six tries with the help of some color-coded hints. Wordle is only available to play through a dedicated website can be played from any computer or mobile device. The game allows users to share results with others without handing over the solution.
