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!

Updating Twitter from Messenger

with 3 comments

If you want to save time and update Twitter from messenger, here’s what you will need:

__ Windows Live Messenger 2009

__ Messenger Plus!

__ Twitter PSM Pusher

__ A Twitter account

 

I recently got a Facebook account, and got tired of updating the status on WLM09 and Facebook separately. I didn’t have the time. So, I searched for a way to update them in one place(well, i guess I DID have the time). That’s when I got Twitter. At the time, I thought Twitter was a status syncing service. Even though Windows Live had just came out with support for twitter, it still didn’t sync Facbebook and Windows Live together. So, I kept on searching. Then I found the answer!

Today, I am going to show you how to update Twitter from your Messenger personal status. First, if you haven’t already, get Windows Live Messenger 2009. After you’ve installed it, download the latest copy of Messenger Plus!, install it, and configure it(the configuration window will automatically pop up). When you’re done configuring, download and install the Twitter PSM Pusher. Now all you need to do is open ANY chat window, type in “/twitterconfig”(do NOT copy it), type in your username and password in the window that pops up, and click “ok.” Now you just need to enter a personal message into the box(it’s right below your name), and push “Enter” on your keyboard. You are done! You can now enjoy the ease of updating your Twitter status right from Messenger(if you also want to update Facebook from Messenger, just install the Twitter add-in for Facebook)!
