Talks about building a new 6WC bot are happening on another post (I don't think I'm allowed to post links as a new user, but it's under "Technical Support and Feature Requests") and I'm thinking if a new bot codebase exists, it could be used directly to run the 6WC as well.
Oh, damn, I didn't notice you posted this. What happened is that I ended up disliking Twitter, so I switched to do some other thing instead for that class.
It's not even because of Twitter's programming interface, but rather their more recent design decisions to the look and usability of the website, not to mention the many new limitations and stricter allowance of content. Notably, searching for tags hardly produces any results anymore. Loading comments is still buggy, even after all these years, to the point I like to imagine the bugs are kept intentionally. I got annoyed that somebody I know had their account closed for making a totally innocuous comment; I suppose they happened to poke the wrong bear. Add my pre-existing dislike for the political vitriol that is socially accepted on that website to all this, and well, more recently I proceeded to delete and close my own account too.
So that's my rant.
I think I should get around making this online challenge anyway, since there seemed to be some interest in a short three-week monthly challenge here, although if I do, it'll likely be hosted on my own website...
