After adjusting some code and making some alterations to a ruby script a friend of mine wrote for scraping reddit, I pulled everything over to one of my Raspberry Pi’s and set up a cron job to run the python and web scraper scripts at the top of every hour.
I then set up the Tweeter account and created/authorized the app to said account. Thus, RandomVoat was born.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
