Twitter doesn't support search for emojis. To build this, I had to use the Emoji Data node package and a regular expression on top of the Twitter Stream API.
I then ran the resulting feed of tweets containing "👏" through a regular expression to keep only tweets that contain "👏 (text)👏 (text)👏 ".
"Anywhere within the tweet, look for a clap emoji, followed by a word or digit, and maybe a space, followed by another clap emoji, followed by a word or digit and maybe a space, followed by a clap emoji."
While bots commonly require supervision, it seems that this bot, which by nature retweets strong convictions, requires much more supervision than I'm able to provide. I turned off the bot because I couldn't stop it from finding tweets that couldn't be filtered by something like Wordfilter, as they didn't contain any specific keywords.
Over 400 perfectly clean tweets remain @lol_yelling.
