Twitter bot running inside Rails


I’ve done some searches for information about running a Ruby twitter
bot and found a few packages & posts, but nothing that quite seems to
match what I want, which is a twitter bot running within Rails. I.e.,
I want simple access to all my models & data. I could hack something
up using script/runner, or rufus-scheduler, but it just seems like
something where someone else would have already done it and have a
plugin, or at least some instructions available.

Any pointers?
