For "Your Profile Name Here", make sure it's your profile name and not your screen name. For instance, mine is "Jackson Palmer"

What a blast from the past. Instructions I used to provide people via Twitter/email when I shared this gist with them:

  1. Install dependencies by running command in first line
  2. Schedule a cron (or preferred scheduler) job to execute the Python script every 60 seconds

I just found this off Reddit, and I think it's funny, the name of this. Based off my internet handle, I named a Discord bot I run "Killabot," and it's also written in Python. What a co-incidence, lol
