Since I couldn’t find a bot that automatically retweets statuses using the
native Twitter Retweet API (all I found was RSS pipes that prefixed messages
with “RT”), I created one myself. Retjilp is a (Ruby) script that logs
into Twitter, scans the statuses of the contacts you are following, and
retweets the statuses matching specified words. The
Swift Twitter feed shows the script in
action, retweeting all Swift and XMPP related tags from the Swift developers.
You can get Retjilp by installing the Retjilp Gem:
gem install retjilp
Or, you can get the source code from the Git repository.
