masto meta / bot help request
If anyone can give me a code / documentation review of my autobooster script, I would appreciate it: https://glitch.com/edit/#!/autoboost
the part that I know is confusing, but I don't know how to clarify is how to get the id of the boosted account on the boosting instance.
The more I think about federation, the more I suspect it'll be important to have an explicit notion of trust baked into the instances. Each instance would have a whitelist of instances that are believed to be good actors—they properly delete posts, don't harbor harassers, etc. They'd also have a transitively trusted subset, whose whitelists are synchronized into the main whitelist to ease the maintenance burden of any given instance maintainer. So mastodon.social and awoo.space might share trust
Ayy! build some bots. https://twitter.com/hypirlink/status/851454623818948612
(To be clear, James, the guy who went for the RTs, is cool as hell and we're talking in a few days. But the fact that tech is so shitty that people think this is where things are at now is... phew.)
