A small python 3.x script to replicate tweets on a Diaspora pod. It is based on https://github.com/cquest/tootbot by Christian Quest
The script only need Diaspora login/pass to post toots.
It gets the tweets from RSS available at http://twitrss.me, then does some cleanup on the content:
- twitter tracking links (t.co) are dereferenced
- twitter hosted pictures are retrieved and uploaded to Diaspora
A sqlite database is used to keep track of tweets than have been posted.
The script is simply called by a cron job and can run on any server.
