    I have been reading a bit recently on how some people use pure programmming to do tasks zenno does such as php etc. for twitter bots and the like.

    I was wondering if you are good at the languages does it turn out quicker and more convenient to make your tasks purely in programming or are apps like zenno still useful for saving time?

    I ask because Ive wondered about learning some of the languages as a long term project or whether sticking with zenno is better. I know that learning the languages will save money because you dont have to pay subscriptions :) but it could also end up costing money if it took alot longer to get things done that could be done on zenno or similar programs more easily.

    Thoughts?

    First of all, you should understand the difference between Zennoposter and PHP bots.

    Zennoposter/UBot = Browser automation
    PHP/.net/Python/etc = Socket automation (with cURL) or Browser automation with other libraries

    And that brings us to the question: Browser vs Socket for automation.

    You can read about that in an old BHW discussion here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...0042-pure-sockets-vs-webbrowser-vs-other.html
