Converts Twitter’s “GIFs” into actual GIFs.

@TheGIFingBot is an open source Twitter bot created by Jeremy Low.

Since GIFs on Twitter are converted into MP4 files, they’re not as easy to keep, download, organize, &c. Everyone loves GIFs is what I am saying. TheGIFingBot exists to return the MP4s to their true, GIF form and make GIFs shareable on Twitter again.
