Often times, after seeing a tweet, I go to https://poet.so to take a screenshot of it. However, this was kinda time consuming and stuff like that, but poet.so doesn't even have an API, so I create a selenium script that (very quickly) uses poet.so to take screenshots of a tweet.
The project is shockingly simple, but super useful. It hardly took 20 minutes for me to make it (because I already had some experiences with the twitter API - auto twitter banner changer )
in fact, it's so simple that this is all I needed to write (with a little bit of reverse engineering of the website and some keyboard tricks)
def get_poem(self, link, savepath="tweet.png"): input_box = self.driver.find_element(by= "tag name", value="input") input_box.send_keys(link + u'\ue007') element = self.driver.find_element("xpath","//*[@data-export-hide]") # Waiting for the image to load time.sleep(5) element.screenshot(savepath)
Anyways, I hope you like my little project. If you have any suggestions or issues, feel free to post them on github.

I'm considering options to host the bot too, but hosting anything using selenium is quite the pain so i'll try my best. For now it's online on my own computer
