Look Outside, Y'all

I like sunsets. I also like programming. Frequently, I'll find that I stay glued to my computer while a beautiful sunset goes on outside. So logically, the correct way to solve this was with more programming.

@LookOutsideYall is a Twitter bot that checks Instagram once a day, a few minutes before sunset. If it sees that a good proportion of photos around London are tagged or described with sunset, then it'll tell the internet that it, collectively, should go outside and take a look at it.

There's not much more I can write about it, so here's a picture of St. Paul's after sunset.
