I enjoy reading quotes, concise and thoughtful ones, as IT workaholics like me are busy and quotes are easy to be consumed; they get me inspired quickly or start off the day with clarity.
To pay my respect and contribute, I wrote a few Windows and Linux scripts (documented below) and established these quote delivery services on Twitter and Facebook in February 2011:
- Twitter: twitter.com/english_quotes & twitter.com/chinese_quotes
- Facebook: facebook.com/quotes.english & facebook.com/chinese.quotes
This blog post describes the previous and current designs of the services as well as sharing the scripts written to implement them. Unlike the last post regarding social media automation which introduced paid services that are more user-friendly, this post demonstrates a more advanced technique; it is completely free of charge, but could be more friendly to system admins or IT pros than general users.
