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 scarce…
