TweetSwitch – tweet from your favorite instant messenger

TweetSwitch is an IM bot that helps you receive and update tweets through your favorite IM clients such as Yahoo, GTalk, Live, ICQ etc.

You can decide to receive all of your tweets, direct messages as well as mentions. TweetSwitch is free and extremely easy to setup.

I liked the site’s user interface and it makes configuring your account easy. With TweetSwitch you don’t need to continuously check Twitter or Tweet Deck, as messages that you want to receive are pushed to you, in real-time. Furthermore, you don’t need to download a dedicated Twitter client for your computer either, as TweetSwitch will redirect tweets to you the way YOU want it.


  • Receive all tweets, direct messages and mentions through instant messenger
  • Choose your favorite instant messaging client such as Yahoo, GTalk, Live etc.
  • Uses twitter oAuth for authentication

Twip.me – twitter on instant messaging for Yahoo, Windows Live and GTalk

Twip.me is a twitter instant messaging client which has been developed to support Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger and Jabber/GTalk.

A long long time ago, twitter had a feature that allowed users to receive tweets through Instant Messaging clients. That feature was taken down and twitter said it would be back soon. Well, it never came back and looks like it never will!

A lot of similar services have been developed for IM clients since then such as ping.fm’s IM bot, Filttr and excla.im. Twip.me is the new kid on the block with some good features.

Twip.me allows you to send @Reply, DM and update your twitter status. You can also send bulk DM by comma separating the usernames of your followers.

You can even follow and unfollow twitter users over this IM client! If you feel the updates are too much, you can pause them and resume as and when you like.

All in all, twip.me has a good set of features you can expect from a twitter IM application.
