I had been playing with some of the old automation stuff the blog was set up with long ago; it seems the feed aggregators are mostly gone, as RSS has gone out of fashion, but the feeds are still going strong. They're what power a lot of the links in the sidebar as well as the blogroll, so I started seeing what I could do with them.
I found my very old Twitter account - and managed to remember enough to reset the password to gain access - to use for a bot. IFTTT leverages many APIs (it seems) to pass data to social media, amongst many other things, so I'm testing whether this post makes it to it now!
Check out how well it's working here:
