Hey people!
Is it worth writing a post regarding deleting SE Twitter bots?
Slight quibble, the bot doesn't pick things "randomly". It has an algorithm and chooses things that seem like they might be worthy questions to share... whether it's a good algorithm is up for debate. Regardless, what you're asking would be difficult to implement and, to be honest, we'd be more likely to just remove the Twitter accounts entirely. — Catija ♦ 16 hours ago
 
@technastic_tc Well - there will be no new ones for various reasons
they're a bit of a legacy thing that some sites are a little attached to
 
Do you mean no new Twitter bots?
 
Yes
So - here's a really important question I ask myself for most MSE posts
What's the quality of life improvement that my proposed change brings?
 
Quality of life improvement?
 
yup
How does it make life better for someone
 
12:51 PM
Hmm..
I was reading your recent post on MSE..
 
the latest? :D
 
I never knew that you were an Indian..
 
XD
I don't exactly have it in flashing lights
 
I thought that you were a Singapore citizen since Singapore is mentioned in location..
 
I'm a singaporean of indian origin
Singapore is a bit of a multicultural place after all, and we're a fairly major minority
 
12:56 PM
Yeah.. I know. Tamilians are popular in Singapore and Malaysia if I'm not wrong..
I do have an idea regarding the famous Murugan temple in Singapore..
Sorry... the famous Murugan temple is in Malaysia.. not Singapore.

@JourneymanGeek I'm just asking.. did you delete my comment on your post?
 
@technastic_tc the typo was fixed I think
as such, no longer needed. Unless I typoed twice
 
@JourneymanGeek yup..
The typo was only once..
Just my opinion.. some times it feels weird when someone deletes my comment. Just saying..
 
Actually - that's a textbook case for a comment deletion
1. You made a correction you couldn't make yourself, since it was too minor
2. OP (me!) saw it, and edited, and flagged it (mentally) as no longer needed
3. a Mod (also me! So much hats! wow!) cleaned up an obsolete comment
 
No offence.
 
None taken
but also, get used to comment deletions :D
 
1:31 PM
It feel different when the OP is mod.. haha..
@JourneymanGeek yeah..
Generally the OP might edit the typo and informs the person who commented. Then I'll flag for comment deletion.. So I'm kinda habituated to it.
My bad!
 
or the OP may NLN flag :D
 
I didn't check all 225 sites but if a question is tweeted event is generated does that mean the site actually has an twitter account? Or is the tweeted event recorded in posthistory anyway, no matter what?
 
I've never ever seen one on IPS, and we don't have a twitter bot... so I guess if the event is generated, it has one.
 
I could be wrong but...
Apparently SE had problems getting API keys at some point
 
yeah, I heard that
I guess that is why not all sites have twitter evernts
 
1:40 PM
so its mostly older sites that have a dedicated twitter account
 
I hand checked 4 sites
 
I do know there's a human-controlled twitter account for SO - and they often post things
So hypothetically - how would a SE controlled bot posting stuff be worse than a SE employee posting things?
or a rando bot or meatsack posting things?
 
@JourneymanGeek yeah.. and the comment might take few hours to get deleted. seeing things happen instantly is new to me.

@rene how are the hands of those sites?
 
3:25 PM
all down
 
Poor hands...
 
it is out of our hands
 
We used to have a SU Magazine as well, but that one is dead
 
And that is only posts that get tweeted , right? Or do mods have an option to tweet as well on behalf of that account?
 
@rene only because our hands are too short. Right, @Rob?
@DavidPostill Magazine? You mean site blog, no? Where users could post or send articles?
 
Rob
3:36 PM
@Shadow10YearsWizard It's like this.
 
@Shadow10YearsWizard Yeah, I think it was a blog. A long time ago ...
 
@Rob who is it?
 
Rob
Read the name.
 
@rene I've no idea. Looks like posts only so probably a bot
It's posting every 3 hours
 
@Rob Hans
"s" isn't "d"
Or, a "d" is just missing?
 
Rob
3:47 PM
@Shadow10YearsWizard Yes, US pronunciation - so not "Hunzs", it's "Hands"; with an almost silent "D".
 
4:22 PM
@Rob nice
 
4:49 PM
Crappy, not spammy.
Is there such a thing "Title only question"?
 
5:39 PM
Hello! I have a question: Is there a post that explains how some No Longer Needed flags can get declined, while the comments get deleted anyway?
Thanks in advance!!!
