Send tweets from MSN messenger

I do not use MSN Messenger on a regular basis but I did have a very active Hotmail account before Gmail was avaialble. Some friends even today refuse to use anything but MSN Live messenger and hence I still stay online to chat with them with Live Messenger. A few days ago I came across a great web service called TwitonMSN which allowed me to use Twitter from my MSN Messenger. πŸ˜‰


Use Twitter from MSN

  • You can visit the website TwitonMSN which will prompt you to add a contact name to your MSN Messenger. The contact is an automated bot which when you log in to your MSN messenger will allow you to connect to Twitter.
  • Just type into MSN Messenger’s chat window whatever you want to. A simple message as in the one shown in the image above is posted as a tweet.
  • The bot also keeps sending you every single tweet on to your messenger chat window.
  • It supports following an username, replying to a tweet and also Retweet. If you drag and drop a picture file into the chat the image is then posted along with a tweet. πŸ˜‰
  • Even sending a direct message is possible by typing it in the following format “d username content” .
  • For a comprehensive command list type in “commands” and for help type in “help”. πŸ™‚

I found this quite handy, even though I do not spend a lot of time on Live messenger. But for our readers who are using Live Messenger this feature will surely be very useful.
