The Social Media Tool (aka SMT) is a tool for enabling non-SocialMediaWG members to contribute to Noisebridge's social media presence by creating and sharing content, replying to messages, and other common functions.
Lots of great stuff happens at Noisebridge that ought to be shared with the world, but the SocialMediaWG team can't handle all of that, and Noisebridge is a do-ocracy, so the solution is simple: let people Do-ocratically run our social media!
How to use the SMT
Currently there is only a Slack interface, but in the future we'll hopefully have more ways of doing this.
Using the Slack interface
SMT integrates with Slack via a collection of slash commands, all of which are prefixed with
smt. So for example, to make a new post, you would type
/smt-make. Each command also has some arguments that you'll need to provide, which are documented in the popup info that Slack displays. They are as follows:
|Make a post (without attachments)||service, content|
|Make a post (with attachments)||service, one or more attachment urls, content|
|Reply to a post (without attachments)||service, url of the post to reply to, content|
|Reply to a post (with attachments)||service, url of the post to reply to, one or more attachment urls, content|
|Delete a post or reply||service, url of post to delete|
|Share someone else's post||service, url of post to share|
|Unshare someone else's post||service, url of post to unshare (your share post URL from Slack, not the shared post's URL)|
