    1 The Twitter modules automatically mirrors selected zephyrs to your
    2 personal class to your twitter feed.
     1The Twitter module implements Twitter support for BarnOwl. It also
     2supports automatic mirroring of some subset of Zephyrs you send to
     3Twitter.

    45To configure it, first
     
    67* Add your twitter credentials to ~/.owl/twitter as a JSON hash, e.g.
    78{"user":"nelhage", "password":"sekrit" }
    8 * Load the module
     9* Load the module (cp Twitter.par into ~/.owl/modules and :reload-module Twitter)
    910* Set the twitter:class, twitter:instance, and twitter:opcode
    1011  variables to the destination you want messages to be mirrored
     
    1415  works as a "match-anything" wildcard for any of the fields.

    16 As of Thanksgiving weekend 2008, Twitter.par will also receive
    17 twitters and inject them into barnowl as messages of type
    18 'twitter'. Currently, it polls every 45 seconds, and there's no way to
    19 disable polling once loaded. There's also no direct message
    20 support. Bug me if fixing any of these is important to you.
     17Twitter.par will also receive twitters and inject them into barnowl as
     18messages of type 'twitter'. It polls for normal messages once a
     19minute, and direct messages every other minute. To disable polling,
     20you can unset the 'twitter:poll' variable in BarnOwl.
