Status changing API?

Since I am now on 3 (!) different status sites, changing all of them by hand gets a little annoying.

Therefore I was thinking about making a web-based tool that can change all three of them.

However, does not appear to have an API I can use to set a status.

Is this a feature somewhere, or will you add it soon(tm)?

came here looking for this too! the status posting script seems to be in the status updater bookmarklet/widget, but i doubt that'd be usable.... right? haven't given it a shot yet.

also, which are the other status sites, that sounds fun 👀

i found the api it uses internally. here's a minimal example using javascript:

const formData = new FormData();
formData.append("gorilla.csrf.Token", ""); // run this javascript on the homepage to find it: document.querySelector("form > input[type=hidden]").value
formData.append("face", "🤖");
formData.append("content", "yo");

fetch("/add?silent=1", {
    method: "POST",
    body: formData,

i assume it's fine to use this as the tos doesn't say you can't programmatically make statuses, right?
