skype_logo.pngOne of my first question was about how to send Twitter updates using Skype instead oftwitter.png anything else as I did not want to install an additional application with a single dedicated purpose.

Apparently I'm not alone in that situation and I found today a "how to" to post updates on Twitter using Skype chat tool


Here’s a little secret which no one seems to know about. There is a Skype robot which will post to your Twitter account.

  1. Add twitter4skype as a contact.
  2. Type the following as a chat message (be sure to do a FULL return for each line):
  3. The system should return: twitter4skype Registration complete!
  4. The next time you write a chat message to twitter4skype, the entry will appear as a Tweet on your account.

Give it a try and let me know how it works out.

Update: Some have reported they have not been successful on their first try to make this work. The issue usually is identified with the returns. On a Mac, make sure you press alt + return after each line. Also make sure there is a return after the last line. Once this is fixed, everything seems to “automagically” work.

    Does Twitter from Skype works as well on a Windows Mobile device ?

  5. Cedric says:

    Good question… I haven’t tried you as I’m not sure that sending SMS via Skype are financially interesting compared to these sent via your local GSM provider.
