TwitterBnter: A Little App to Post Twitter Conversations on Bnter

Sinatra, code


Bnter is a site that lets you post conversations. Weirdly, they don’t allow you to natively import Twitter conversations without retyping them. I wrote a fun little app called TwitterBnter that pulls conversations from tweet IDs or URLs and automatically posts them to Bnter (via their cool OAuth API. Note, Bnter only allows three max exchanges per conversation right now, so TwitterBnter will drill back as far as it can in the convo from the tweet you submit (use the most recent for best results), take the first three exchanges and reverse it, so the first one goes on top in the Bnter post.
