Courtesy of moving jobs, a lot of annual leave to use up, and covid-19 lockdown I’ve had more time than usual to spend on personal projects.
I’d been meaning to do this one for a while. As far as I can tell there is no way to follow a hashtag on twitter the way you can on instagram. So if you want to keep up to date with content under a particular tag you need to manually search for it each time.
For economics, the most prominent hashtag is
#econtwitter. So I built a bot
to periodically search for tweets under that hashtag and retweet from those
available. By following the bot you should keep up to date with content from
accounts you don’t already follow.
