BPFactiodBot handles dissemination of the Daily Coastal Factoids that are posted on Beachapedia.

The Bot checks for new factoids at 15 minutes past the hour between 9:15 AM and 5:15 PM each weekday.

When a factoid for the day is found, the Bot checks to see if it has been tweeted/emailed, and does so if it has not been tweeted/emailed yet.

The Bot sends out the factoid via the CoastalFactoid and envirosurf twitter accounts, as well as emailing it to the Surfrider Activists Email List.

The code for the bot can be found on the Source Code Page

Any questions/comments or suggestions for improvement should be directed to Chris Wilson, the bot's creator/maintainer.
