Dadabots became a monolithic notebook of code. Separate it back into its reusable pieces, so new bots are easier to make, and old bots are easier to update (whenever soundcloud API changes).
Store activity in database.
One follower got annoyed because the bot remixed 5 of his tracks (randomly). Instead remix one track per user until all users have been remixed.
Remix tracks which users send bot in a private message.
Unfollow users which do not follow back after n days.
