Instabot V1.0 Stable Release: Auto-like, Auto-follow
|Meet the Bot.|
I have now reached a point where I feel that I have built a solid portfolio of some crafty brews and I want them to be seen. I don't just want them to sit there and do nothing. I want them to make other people go out and drink good craft beer. But in order for them to do that, I need to be reach out to communities that have similar interests to mine so that I can learn a thing or two from them and vice-versa.
I did take the ethical route of clicking on hashtags, liking pictures, commenting on some genuinely sexy beer bottles and even following people whom I thought were worth my time. I really did. Unfortunately, the whole process of clicking with your thumb felt archaic as it was 1) slow and 2) extremely time consuming. I just don't have the time for that. I had to find a better way.
I had to automatize the whole process.
