With the number of changes since Twitter is under new ownership I’m not sure this can still work.
I have a Raspberry PI freely collocated by the nice people at pcextreme. Being a Jolla fan I found a new use for it. I made a Retweet bot that retweets everything #Jolla.
- It’s pretty simple. First you need to define your new twitter app here.
- Install on your raspberry the tweepy twitter python library. Warning usually it would be as easy as pip install tweepy but the current version has a bug which means you have to install a patched version of tweepy found here:
git clone https://github.com/knowsis/tweepy.git cd tweepy python setup.py install
- Download and configure retweet-bot to your liking.
Once done I added a cronjob that runs retweet.py every 10 minutes and outputs to a log file. You can see (and follow) the endresult here: http://twitter.com/rtjolla
