My really hacky livetweeting script. You pass in the ID of the tweet to continue the thread from.
require "yaml"
require "twitter"
config = YAML.load_file(File.expand_path("~/.trc")).dig("profiles", "qyliss").each_value.first
last_status = ARGV.fetch(0)
twitter = Twitter::REST::Client.new do |t|
t.consumer_key = config.fetch("consumer_key")
t.consumer_secret = config.fetch("consumer_secret")
t.access_token = config.fetch("token")
t.access_token_secret = config.fetch("secret")
end
loop do
file = Tempfile.new("tweet")
file.write(" #BathRuby")
file.close
system ENV.fetch("EDITOR"), file.path
text = File.read(file.path)
file.unlink
break unless text[/\S/]
begin
last_status = twitter.update(text, in_reply_to_status_id: last_status).tap { |tweet|
puts tweet.text
puts tweet.id
}.id
rescue
retry
end
end
