Last week I saw some chatter on Twitter between Sara Soueidan, Greg Whitworth, and Lea Verou about reporting browser bugs through tweets.

It seemed like a cool idea to me. It would really lower the entrance barrier for users (non-programmer types) to report issues but how would you manage adding/tracking the issues? Someone would have to watch the hashtag, you might miss some, etc.

So I had the idea to create a bot that watches Twitter and automatically opens issues on a corresponding GitHub repo.

Setup is pretty simple all you need is a Twitter and GitHub account. Set some variables and go!
