Getting Started

LEC_Ditto is a bot that tracks the follows and unfollows of Twitter accounts. It's written in Python and uses the Twitter API to get the data.

Why Telegram?

Long story short, technically the way the bot works, sending tweets mentioning several accounts, is against Twitter rules and I was banned for it 🤐.

I needed a simple way to store the information and have easy access to it to filter and send the tweets. If you try the bot, you will realize that it generates a lot of noise and you are going to need a way to deal with that.

Telegram is "perfect" for that. You can have the information synced on several devices and you can filter it in a very easy way.

If you still do not want to use it, just comment out lines 87 and 93 of the main.py file and the bot will continue working normally.

Sending tweets

Not advised; you may end up banned.

If you still want to send tweets in an automated way using the API just remove the comments from lines 110 to 118 of the main.py file.



Download the repo using git or directly from github

git clone https://github.com/victoravtr/LEC_Ditto.git

Install dependencies with poetry:

poetry install

Put your API keys and tokens in the config.cfg file.

Put the accounts you want to track in the data/users.json file. There is a sample file with all LEC players to show you how the format looks like.

Important: "name" and "username" or "id" are required, the bot will not work without them.

You can choose one between "username" and "id" and the bot will look for the missing data but "name" is mandatory. Some players change their Twitter names quite often and many of them may not be recognizable, you need to name them to know which player you are talking about.

    "accounts": [
            "name": "G2 Esports",
            "username": "G2esports",
            "id": "1124722303"
            "name": "FNATIC",
            "username": "FNATIC",
            "id": "19976791"


Start the bot with the following command:

poetry run python3 main.py

That's all!🎉
