The code that runs the PC BASIC bot at https://twitter.com/PCBASICBot

Documentation for using the bot is at https://pcbasicbot.com
The main twitter posting code is based on what I learned from "The Reply to Mentions Bot" at https://realpython.com/twitter-bot-python-tweepy/#the-config-module
- A Twitter account, and API keys for it https://developer.twitter.com/en/products/twitter-api
