Updating Messenger and Facebook from Twitter

with 4 comments

If my last post about Twitter and Messenger helped you, this post should be even better. Let’s go over the list of stuff you need. (* = Optional)

_ Windows Live Messenger
_ Messenger Plus!
_ Twit2MSN
_ A Facebook Account*
_ A Public Twitter Account

Let’s start at the Windows Live Messenger end. First, if you haven’t already, go download Messenger Plus! from http://www.msgpluslive.net/ and install it. Then, download and run Twit2MSN(it should install automatically).
After it’s done installing, open messenger, click the image icon, then click ”Scripts Preferences…”

Click “Twit2MSN” the click “Edit”

On line 17, replace either “WARlrus” or “twitter” with your Twitter username, then click “Save All”. Then, click “OK”.image

Now for the (optional) Facebook side. First, make sure your Twitter account is public. After you’ve made that change, click this link to install the Facebook Twitter app.

Then, click the “Install Twitter in Facebook” button

Then click “Allow”

Sign in…

Then click the big “Allow Twitter to update your Facebook status” button

Make sure your name is selected, then click “Allow Status Updates”

Aaannnndddd… Your done! You can now update your Windows Live Messenger and Facebook status from anywhere in the world!

Hopefully in a couple of weeks I’ll write another [fun] way to do this when I can actually do it myself. Enjoy!
