IOTA+ Twitter Bot Beta

About:

This side is to inform about the fuctions of the IOTA Twitter Bot and to inform how to use it on a safe way.

IOTA has so called SEEDs which are a keys to get to the funds on and to generate addresses to receive funds.

Safe handling of the Twitter Bot and your funds:

One ideology of IOTA is security this means – Never share your SEED!

Who has the SEED has full controll over the funds. Sharing your SEED means a lag of security.

To understand the risk please read all untill the end.


Twitter Bot Functions:

 

1. When you write the first time „wallet to the bot and never received any IOTA: 

– The bot generates randomly a SEED  an a safe address to receive funds. The SEED and and you @name from Twitter is safed in a list.  

– The Bot sends you a privat message with your SEED, new generated Address and Balance.

The address must be always new it means never used – this is important otherwise the address is hackable 

The bot takes care about that. 

2. Write „wallet to the bot as known user  or if you already received IOTA: 

The Bot search the SEED for your username. generates the last unused address, ask the tangle for balance and send you a private message with these informations

3. Write a tweet or a comment with the code:  #SendIOTA 1234 @example to someone which already has a SEED in the bots list:

— The bot will search for the receiver @example in the list and with the SEED it generates the last unused(safe) address

– The bot will send from the sender SEED 1234 IOTAs to the new and safe receiver address.

– The receiver @example will receive a message with the amount he/she received and from whom

 4.Write a tweet or a comment with the code:  #SendIOTA 1234 @example to @example – which has not a SEED in the bots list yet:

 
Actually the same like 3. just that the bot generates for the receiver first a SEED and an unused address and safes it to the list with the username. 
Just like he would have written „wallet“ to the bot…
 
 

But the Twitter Bot knows my SEED? Why?

Yes.

As you see the bot needs the keys to generate the last unused address of the receiver. 

If you want to charge funds on that wallet/address

to make IOTA tips  or if you received tips please be aware of folowing:

– AGAIN: YOU SHOULD NEVER SHARE YOUR SEED

– There are still bugs – The IOTA+ Twitter Bot  is in early Beta phase. (It is a product of 5 days work and now in just testphase analizing bugs.)

– Changings can happen at anytime like new feature comming up

I Marlon Morales from IOTA+ recommends to have just the amount of IOTAs in the Wallet you are willing to risk to loose as a cause of the here above called bugs and security lags.
In addition I also recomment to transfer all funds after using the wallet to a safer wallet.  

USING THE BOT JUST ON YOUR OWN RISK! 

 MARLON MORALES IS NOT RESPONSIBLE ON ANY LOST OF FUNDS.

WITH USING THIS BOT YOU CONFIRM THAT YOU READ, UNDERSTOOD AND AGREE THE TERMS.

The lastest Update:
