I have a Node.js package called davetwitter. It contains all the code I use to talk to Twitter from all my Node apps. I want to do everything I do with Twitter for Mastodon. I don't have the ability to do this myself, for quite some time -- I'm the only person working on FeedLand and there's still a lot more to do. The package is MIT licensed, so anyone can do this work, and I don't need all the functionality. Looking for someone to take on this project. #
We are swimming in fake news. All the big news brands lied about the most basic fact about the country we live in. Why should anyone pay any attention to the garbage that journalism tries to feed us?#
One of the nice features on Facebook, they show you things you wrote on this day in years past. I just read a bunch of them, all humorous and written in a certain style that's not really mine. I love my own writing, I have to say. I imagine most writers do. Put me in a good mood.#
Here's one of the pieces, written on my 50th birthday. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
