Auto tweet live sim?

Is there a way to get OOTP to automatically send tweets while running a live sim? I'm thinking I start a month long sim at x60 speed before I go shopping with the wife, and OOTP tweets me updates to scores, news, and other tidbits while I'm out.

Great idea.

x60 would be waaaay too fast for me.

Out shopping I'd probably want a x5 at most.

I could see all kinds of ways to expand on this. Online leagues, while at work, during family get togethers

Bump again.

Best idea I've seen in a long time.

Have you posted it on the forum for ideas for future versions of the game?

I'm in two leagues that are running real-time sims. I've built some tools that scrape the real-time sim HTML page, and post info to Slack via their Web API. It makes real-time sim leagues far more interesting, IMHO. I've put some of the code in a bitbucket private repo, but could share it with people if they're interested.

Changing from posting the info to Slack to posting to Twitter might not be that hard, but I actually think Slack would be a better way to see it anyway, especially if there is more than one person interested in the updates.

The code (in Python) still requires some know-how to set up, as it runs in a cron job from a Linux machine, but most of what it scrapes from the HTML is in a config file.

If there's a lot of interest, I could share more broadly, I'd love to get some additional collaboration going, but if it's just a few people, DM me and I can arrange to share what I've built so far.

Attached are two screenshots of what a couple of our league's Slack channels look like during the real-time sim.

I've used Slack before, and that makes a lot of sense. Seems better than spamming Twitter with the info, since a lot of followers of the account won't care about what's happening in your league. (Unless, of course, it's an account dedicated just to that league. I've seen several of those.)

I didn't even think about using slack, that's an even better idea!

I run a league and use Slack for communication, and would LOVE to incorporate this into my league, but you said stuff like Python and cron job and I have no freakin idea what you mean. Is it realistic to be able to implement this if you're not familiar with coding?

Real life is a little busy, but seems like there's more than enough interest for me to put some more time into getting the tools into a state where more people can use them, even without detailed knowledge of coding.

Give me a few more days, and I'll follow up here with more instructions.

About the only thing that says "You aren't important to me" more than checking scores while with my wife would be checking fake scores.

I am the king of phony posts thanks to that project.

Replied by PM, thanks for the ping. Maybe it's a good time to try and get this released to a broader audience. It is working great for my league (USBA).

I am going to try and do one more clean-up pass on the code, get some initial documentation together, and then share it. It is working well for 3 leagues I have tried it with, so it's already somewhat portable.
