Echo (Ēkhō): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echo_(mythology)#
# How it works
- each bot is launched every 35 seconds, so the bot1 is launched at time 0, the bot2 is launched at time 35s, the bot3 is launched at time 1:10 minutes, etc
- the bots are running in parallel
- each bot streams the Twitter API getting the tweets containing one or more keywords configured in the file keywordsConfig.json
- then, the bot randomly gets a reply from the file repliesConfig.json
- after a bot replies a tweet, the bot 'sleeps' 1 minute, to avoid the Twitter API limitation
Needs the files:
```
botsConfig.json --> contains the tokens of the bots
