[liberationtech] Should we start a new Stanford liberationtech-news list?

Oh, IFTT could be a good, easy solution too; I haven't looked at IFTTT
in a long time, but it should be easy to create a recipe for this. 

Are you happy with the output of the IFTT email from the recipe you're
using?

I would guess that for the mailing list, you might want only the tweet
text, the specific tweet's URL (the short URL, the full URL and/or the
display URL) and maybe the URL for the article linked within the tweet.
That would be easy to isolate from the Python script.

Also, are you looking for HTML to plop into the email, or only plaintext?
