Comcast Problem Tweeting Autobot

Genius:
"A Reddit user became so frustrated with paying Comcast for 150 mbps internet but not receiving the prescribed speed, so set up a bot using a Raspberry Pi to tweets complaints at the ISP.

The bot constantly performs speed tests to check if the internet is up to scratch, and if it drops below 50mbps an automatic tweet to Comcast with the speeds is generated."

  1. My first reaction: AWESOME!
    My second reaction: Yeah, that will do absolutely no good. Waste of time and a perfectly good RPi.
