Re-dent/tweet @ubuntuclassroom

Bug Description

ClassBot automatically dents and tweets to @ubuntuclassroom twice per session: once 10 minutes before it starts, and once as it is starting. For example, see and!/ubuntuclassroom/status/77857427239874560). It would be nice if instead of creating a new tweet if Lernid would simply redent/retweet these existing messages.

Changed in lernid:

Wouldn't we need some kind of url or descriptor of the classbot tweet? Forgive me, Nathan, for not understanding how this works.

Would this be an alternative to allowing the student to compose their own tweet? lp: #794121

Yeah, it would have to do something like read the ubuntuclassroom feed (via twitter API), match up which tweet it's looking for (string match on title, starting with the latest, probably) and then retweet.

Now, if the button says "Tweet current session" and we assume the latest tweet from @ubuntuclassroom is the current session (it should be) this may be a bit easier.

Either way, I think this is very, very wishlisty :)
