Today finds me working on actually parsing the body of each tweet in an attempt to classify them. I need to spend a bit more time making sure that I’m correctly identifying each type of tweet. Quote Tweets especially, since right now (as you’ll see in my results) that’s the one I’m least sure about.
Here’s some numbers based on ALL of my tweets (posts, replies, retweets, and quote tweets) from 2020 onward.
Let’s start today with the personal shit… I was up half the night with a vomiting child last night. I was up early to get the other kid ready for school. I worked all day. I am TIRED. But I am showing up for my blog. I am showing up for 100 days!
Twitter Import I continued to work this evening on importing my tweets as Hugo posts. I need to classify my tweets, so therefore I need to define a data structure to do so.
A big part of owning my content is preserving it. I have over a decades worth of content hosted exclusively on Twitter. I’d like to change that! After all, that’s what the IndieWeb is all about.
The first step was requesting and downloading all my content from the bird site. Once that was done I used the Twitter Archive Parser from Tim Hutton. From there is where MY story begins.
