Wake up IFTTT, nothing posting to my Lifestream and why do my blogged tweets look like a wordprocessor threw up on my posts? #mscedc

Edit – I’ve since trawled back through my automated posts and embedded the tweets – less IFTTT more OCD!
To be fair IFTTT is a clever idea, enabling a myriad of on-line activities to trigger other activities or entire chains of activities. From an education perspective it could be useful for helping students understand cause and effect, or the basic principles of coding .
I use IFTTT along with Amazon’s Alexa voice recognition to trigger home automation activities, although I’ve discovered that these too can yield undesirable results. For example, at one point turning on my TV and Amp would turn off the lights!
