TwitterBot by saghul

TwitterBot is an easy way of creating a Twitter bot which twitts everything
tagged with a givven tag.

For getting TwitterBot to work you need to create a SQLite database using FTS3:

$ > sqlite3 twitterbot.db
sqlite> CREATE VIRTUAL TABLE twitts USING fts3(id, content);
sqlite> .quit

And add a cron job with the necessary parameters:

*/5 * * * *     /home/saghul/work/git/twitterbot/twitter-bot.py -t asterisk > /dev/null 2>&1

  -t: Hashtag

You'll need to edit the config.ini file, because Twitter now only
allows OAuth based authentication
