Twitter to IRC Gateway

the twitter to IRC gateway has reached a major milestone!

it works so well its creepy. the bot creates ghost logins (with a ^ before the nick) and speaks through that login for any of the people i follow on twitter. #twitter


  • turns on device-follow for all friends
  • only works when nothing else is logged into gtalk

to support the following of other accounts, i need a way to follow via XMPP without becoming a follower of that account. or if the user trusts the bot enough, for them to give up their twitter password.
