chatter trigger to send email to followers every post

I am new and do not have a programming background but I thought I would ask anyway.  I would like to be able to write code to send an email to all chatter followers of an opportunity when a chatter post has been made.  I know that there are daily digest, which I cannot seem to get to work.  But the users want to be able to recieve an email immediately when a post has been made to an opportunity.  They would also like to be able to send a response to the email and it be added to chatter, thereby sending another email to the followers.  Would a trigger be able to accomplish any of this?  If so, how would I begin?
