My friends Maggie and Beth wanted a Twitter bot that could tweet out some bad sexts. I bet that you could make some by just searching for already-existing tweets containing a few key present-tense phrases and just drop "SEXT:" in front of it. These jokes literally write themselves.
Run it with
$ python badsext.py /path/to/config.file
and it will draw a random present-tense verb and an object and hunt for sexts in the wild out on Twitter.
You should make a filecalled
autopost.config, and pass it in as the argument
badsext.py routine. It should look like:
CONSUMER_KEY = [the key] CONSUMER_SECRET = [the secret] ACCESS_KEY = [the key] ACCESS_SECRET = [the secret]
That's how it authenticates itself to Twitter for read and write requests, in case you wanna set up your own bot account.
Library wise, I think all it needs is Tweepy:
$ pip install tweepy
It hollers about
InsecurePlatformWarning and how "a true SSLContext object
is not available." I don't know how to fix that. It's preposterous.
