How to Set Your Tweets as Google Talk Status Messages
By on March 16th, 2010

Would you like to automatically update your Google talk status messages with tweets from your profile? It might be a good idea to change Google talk status messages with your tweets as this will let your IM buddies know what you are doing.

Twitter2Gtalk helps you achieve just the same. You can connect your Google talk and Twitter accounts and cross post Tweets as Google talk status messages. The app will change the status messages every 30 minutes, so there is nothing to worry if you tweet quite often.

To get started, login to Twitter2Gtalk website with your Google account and enter the password of your Gtalk account. Next, enter your Twitter username as shown below:

twitter-to-gtalk

That’s it. Now your Google talk buddies will see your tweets as status messages every 30 minutes. However, tweets that start with ‘@’ will not be sent to GTalk.

This app can be really useful. Say you are attending a seminar and want your friends to know how the seminar is going. You update your Twitter profile from the mobile phone and the tweet is set as the status message of your Google talk account. As for bloggers, it’s a great way to promote their posts among their Google talk friends network. Also read: how to schedule Facebook status messages.
