TwitterBot Gem Released

Posted by Curtis Miller Curtis Miller

Tonight, at one of our (in)famous hack-a-mania nights, we released a gem for accessing Twitter through XMPP. Read the full release article and then go get hacking!

I'm excited because not only did I have a hand in the creation of the twitter_bot gem, but I also helped in the development of Props & Drops, aka. TwitterProps, a Twitter application that uses this gem. So If you want to see it in action, give someone props (or drops) via twitter:

props @username for doing something cool


drops @username for being a jerk

Go try it out!

DISCLAIMER: TwitterProps and twitter_bot only work when Twitter has their track feature enabled, which recently has been scarceā€¦
