A terribly useless twitter bot (written for a terribly bored friend). It’s best not to ask what this is about and instead just move on and marvel at the beauty of unconditional friendship (or criminal blackmail).

twibit >= twibot-0.1.3
alexvollmer-daemon-spawn

Configuration

Rename both bot.yml.sample files in config/:

cp config/bot.yml.sample config/bot.yml

and configure your account:

username: password

That’s all.

Usage

To start:

ruby ./bot.rb start

To stop:

ruby ./bot.ruby stop

To see if it’s still running:
