I hope you don't mind, but I have a few code improvements you could make!

1:

Never use != or == None. None is not a value you should compare to, it's an equality comparison.

So instead of, for instance, " if (media['id'] != None):", it should be " if (media['id'] is not None):"

@tcql Sorry, I sent a lot of toots to several of your bots. I think they're all relevant though.

Still trying to figure out mastodon.

@ankhmorpork awesome, thanks for the feedback. I checked the mentions on the bot accounts, so I've got the whole message.

I'm pretty new at python, so happy for the language specific tips

@tcql It's absolutely fine code for someone who's new to it! I figured you had some experience in it, but I'm glad to point out the one true path while you're still new to it.
