Send Tweets From Your Favorite Instant Messengers with Twitt’d
By on July 30th, 2008

We just love twitter, not only because of the ease of use and simplicity, but also because of the number of applications that have been built using their API.

Those applications make it easier for twitter users to tweet from wherever they are and whichever application they choose. Though twitter have disabled updates by IM for some time now, we landed upon a really useful service called Twitt’d, which will allow users to send tweets using their favorite instant messengers including Skype, Google Talk, Jabber, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo Messenger.

To start using twitt’d, add the contacts to one of your favorite instant messenger.

You can start using the service by simply saying hi or what’s up? to the bot, once you have done that it will start asking you for your login information and password. Once you have authenticated yourself, you can send and receiving tweets.

Note: We could not authenticate while using yahoo messenger and Google talk contact is having some problem, do let us know if you could get through either of the messengers.

You can also use the following commands with Twitt’d:

/updates – toggles update receiving from people you follow
/changepassword NEWPASSWORDHERE – use this if you’ve changed your Twitter account password
/forgetme – delete your Twitt’d account

So if your missing the IM update feature from twitter you know which bot to add.
