i just joined and noticed it's tough to find active people to follow. communitywiki.org/trunk has built themed lists, which are a great start, but many accounts are stale and there's a lot of clicking to navigate online.

so last night i played with 's API and packaged up some filtering and automation into /#selenium so all i have to do is 1 click confirm. i put it on gh this morning for other like me. github.com/lots-of-things/pytr

Why does it need selenium btw, chrome or firefox headless/webdriver should be all you need nowadays :)


@sexybiggetje i'd just used selenium chrome webdriver in a python script before so i went with what i was familiar with. i also wanted to do it with an open browser so i could see the profile photos.
