Twitter support in JabberStatus

Posted by

JabberStatus was originally inspired by Twitter's facility to update your status via XMPP/Jabber. Unfortunately, Twitter's Jabber interface has been down for months now, which is rather sucky.

The solution to this? Extend JabberStatus to work for Twitter as well as Facebook. It turned out to be very easy, so it's online now. Just add twitterstatus@jabber.org to your contact list and it will talk you through the rest.

The JabberStatus code has moved to GitHub now, so you can grab it from there. The code for the CO2Updates app has also moved there.
