`freetweet` is Gab's tool for posting scraped tweets to [Gab Social](https://gab.com). This script accesses [sqlite3](https://github.com/mapbox/node-sqlite3) databases generated by
[twint](https://github.com/twintproject/twint) by scraping tweets from [Twitter](https://twitter.com).
## Basic workflow
1) download tweets with `twint`
2) upload to ActivityPub server with freetweet
This can be run in cron, using a script like this:
```sh
#!/bin/bash
twint -u getongab --database getongab.db --resume getongab.txt --retweets
node freetweet.js -u getongab
```
## Getting started
It is assumed you already have Node.js version 10.16LTS installed and configured. It is also assumed you have cloned the `freetweet` git repository and are in the `freetweet` directory.
