Hello Everyone,

So there has been a lot of buzz on twitter, and I realized it would be cool if I could have my mIRC bot post my twitter status everytime it is updated. Or at least when typing say !twitter, it pulls up my twitter.

I have found a lot of scripts on how to update twitter from mIRC, but not for it to post the twitter status when updated from twitter.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Cheers,
Dylan

Thanks.. but I don't think that will work. The only one I see is "Twitter Update & Direct Message" which is for sending updates. Not receiving.

Thanks anyway though smile

Maybe this will help you...

Code:
alias tweet {
  set %tw.username YOURLOGIN
  set %tw.password YOURPASSWD
  if ($len($1-) > 140) {
    echo -a Ops, that was $calc($len($1-)-140) ONLY 140 Chars!
    halt
  }
  set %authentication $encode($+(%tw.username,:,%tw.password),m)
  sockclose twitter
  sockopen twitter twitter.com 80
  .timertwitter 1 10 twitter_timeout
  set %tweet $$1-
}

alias urlencode return $regsubex($1-,/\G(.)/g,$iif(($prop && \1 !isalnum) || !$prop,$chr(37) $+ $base($asc(\1),10,16),\1))
alias urldecode return $replace($regsubex($1-,/%(\w\w)/g,$chr($iif($base(\t,16,10) != 32,$v1,1))),$chr(1),$chr(32))

on *:sockopen:twitter:{
  sockwrite -n twitter POST /statuses/update.json HTTP/1.1
  sockwrite -n twitter Host: twitter.com
  sockwrite -n twitter User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032620 Firefox/3.0b5
  sockwrite -n twitter Content-Length: $calc($len($urlencode(%tweet)) + 9)
  sockwrite -n twitter Authorization: Basic %authentication
  sockwrite -n twitter $crlf
  sockwrite twitter status=
  sockwrite -n twitter $urlencode(%tweet)
  sockwrite twitter $crlf
  sockwrite twitter $crlf
}


alias twitter_timeout {
  echo -a Message Failed to Send - Socket Timeout 
  sockclose twitter
}


on *:sockread:twitter: {
  .timertwitter off
  sockread -f %string
  echo -a Message Status ( $+ %string $+ )
  sockclose twitter
}

menu channel {
  Twitter
  .Send Tweet { /tweet $?="Mensaje:" }
}

on *:text:!twitter*:#channel:{
  /tweet Message from $nick : $2-
}



Cheers.

partyboy911,

I do not have a script for you, but for a trigger you can pull the last tweet of a user by fetching "http://search.twitter.com/search?rpp=1&from=<username>" and then filter the results from the html. The results are in a li element with a class of "result ". The actual message part is in a div element with a class of "msg".

-edit-

I did notice a similar script to my post on hawkee. With a little modification it can do what you want (at least the trigger part).

Here's one I wrote a while ago...

Code:
alias -l username return <your username>
alias -l password return <your password>

alias -l raiseerror {
  echo -a * /twitter: $1-
  halt
}
alias -l urlencode return $regsubex($1-,/([^a-z0-9])/ig,% $+ $base($asc(\t),10,16,2))

alias twitter {
  hfree -w twitter
  sockclose twitter
  sockopen twitter twitter.com 80
  sockmark twitter status= $+ $urlencode($1-)
}

on *:sockopen:twitter:{
  if ($sockerr) {
    sockclose twitter
    raiseerror socket error. Try again later.
  }
  var %s = sockwrite -n twitter
  %s POST /statuses/update.xml HTTP/1.1
  %s Host: twitter.com
  %s Authorization: Basic $encode($+($username,:,$password),m)
  %s Accept: */*, *.*
  %s Connection: close
  %s User-Agent: mIRC/ $+ $version
  %s Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
  %s Content-Length: $len($sock(twitter).mark)
  %s
  %s $sock(twitter).mark
}
on *:sockread:twitter:{
  var %data
  sockread %data
  if ($regex(%data,/<error>(.+?)</error>/)) {
    hfree -w twitter
    sockclose twitter
    raiseerror $regml(1)
  }
  if ($regex(%data,/<(.+?)>(.+?)</\1>/)) hadd -m twitter $regml(1) $regml(2)
  elseif (%data == </status>) .signal twitterpost
}


Edit the username and password return values at the top, then use /twitter <status> to update your status.

When the post is complete you can use the "twitterpost" signal to do something, like so:

Code:
on *:signal:twitterpost:{
  var %i = 1
  while ($hget(twitter,%i).item) {
    echo -a $v1 : $hget(twitter,$v1)
    inc %i
  }
}
