    @steko
    @edsu I would like to give a spin to wikimedia labs for https://twitter.com/mibactedits
    (btw there is no activity yet because the IP range is on a global lock)
    Renato Gabriele
    @remagio
    @steko what do you mean with global lock? Inside SPC?
    that's the IP range I'd like to track
    Renato Gabriele
    @remagio
    @steko what's the problem, that ministry own many others btw, if they edit wikipedia you'll catch them anyway. At first look it doesn't seem locked down...
    @edsu sorry for saying it here but if you check TW API Status you'll get notice that since 2 weeks API about user stream (I think API calls about user search goes through it) you'll get notice it's under total disruption

    @steko
    @remagio I know but so far I've been able to collect only one IP range 151.12.58.0/24
    btw that could be merged right into @ItaGovEdits perhaps?

    @edsu
    @remagio ok you are all set w/ access to the anon project
    Ed Summers
    @edsu
    basically just ssh to tools-dev.wmflabs.org
    and then type: become anon
    which should switch you into the anon project environment
    then read the README
    which should provide instructions on how to generate the access key for your twitter account, add it to the config, and restart the bot

    @remagio
    sure @steko, thx. I have yet that IP but with all Italian's ministers IPs (;-)). I didn't included Ministry with @ItaGovEdits b/c they did an enormous history of updates. With @jarib we created a store with the entire history of updates and when that too will be ready we could open all accounts. I have created a specific TW additional accounts one for ministry and one for regional governments.
    @edsu @steko I'll give a try, I was waiting for wikipedia anon instance, to understand if open up all other governments anon yet created or merge them with your wmf lab project. I'll keep you updated

    @remagio ok

    @sjwiki
    Hi there, I was wondering if anon can be adapted to tweet all edits regardless of IP address to twitter? :)
    Or would I be better off using some other bot?
    (Obviously not to be used on Wikipedia)
    Ed Summers
    @edsu
    @sjwiki anon uses a library called wikichanges to monitor the recent changes for all major language wikipedias ; so you could use that if you wanted
    @sjwiki unfortunately, I doubt Twitter would let you post all edits, you'd likely get blocked
    @sjwiki this is what all the edits looks like http://wikistream.wmflabs.org/
    sjwiki
    @sjwiki
    I want to post all the edits from my own wiki
    Nowhere near as many as those to Wikipedia - thankfully!

    @edsu
    What is "your wiki"?

    @jarib
    my anon instance has been awfully quiet, no tweets in about a month
    lsof reveals it’s connected to argon.wikimedia.org
    but strace has it just repeating this over and over: https://gist.github.com/jarib/b978874331129d0a6c08
    someone here who can strace their instance and check if that’s normal?
    it’s a bit suspicous to me that there are noe read() calls in there..
    Renato Gabriele
    @remagio
    let me check @jarib, I found since a couple of week that often I have to relaunch the process for something like that.
    Jari Bakken
    @jarib
    i did a restart. it’s calling read() for a while, but it’s not doing that anymore
    tcpdump also shows no irc traffic
    well, besides PING/PONG commands
    hm. i can’t see my bot in the #en.wikipedia channel
    perhaps it’s been kicked
    Jari Bakken
    @jarib
    actually, the PING/PONG could be from another client..
    Renato Gabriele
    @remagio
    or some maintenance scripts kicked out bots on irc channels
    not sure they like too much anon bots connected, imho
    Ed Summers
    @edsu
    I haven't been kicked yet. Make sure you are running latest anon and double check you've got latest dependencies by doing a rm -rf node_modules and npm install. There was a problem a while back with the wikichanges module which was connecting too quickly to too many channels which was causing it to get kicked.
    Jari Bakken
    @jarib
    ah
    sounds plausible. i’ll try that
    shouldn’t anon crash or at least log that it has been kicked?
    Ed Summers
    @edsu
    it wasn't crashing for me
    edsu @edsu crosses fingers
