Spun up the @hkfp newsbot. Slowly moving all my public-interest Twitter follows over as bots.
At first, I was just spinning up bots for feeds that I couldn't find in the Fediverse, but I'm observing that many of the existing bots seem to rely on Twitter > RSS feeds, which leads to lengthy delays in their posting, and their dumping a bunch of Toots in a batch. Also, some of their hosting seems unreliable where we don't see any posts for 8-10hrs at a time... so I need to spin up some of my own.
