Nearly a year ago I tweeted the following.
A twitter bot that notices when folks post screenshots from their phone. If it shows < 20% battery than it tweets to remind them to plug in.

It was always funny and frustrating to me when folks shared screenshots from their mobile phones with such low battery. For some reason the low battery bugged me. It’s like living on the edge, man!
So then today I get this reply.

I was curious if I was the first to think of it. I wasn’t, which is cool. It looks from my sleuthing that the first mention was back in 2013.
I need to make a twitter bot that trawls through people's phone screenshots and bitches at them for not charging their damn battery.

I love the Internet – and the people on it.
