jtcgreyfox Posted November 4, 2009 Share Posted November 4, 2009 Ive come up with an interesting idea which I don't think has been done yet. implementing Twitter4J (a twitter access API for java) i made an app which processes direct messages to a particular twitter account as commands on the command line. I called mine Twitexec. to set it up you need to make a receiver twitter account and bind it to your normal twitter account. Then you run the program with 3 arguments (account, password, delayBetweenUpdatesInSeconds) and it will poll the direct messages list for new messages, parsing them as commands. (FYI you cant request more than 150 twitter updates within an hour. so keep the update time to more than about 30 seconds) You can then send that new account direct messages (eg: d testAccount explorer) and it will open a new explorer window on all computers running the program. I thought it would be a nice idea for people who wish to run similar commands on a large number of computers. also mostly just proof of concept to get twitter to do more than chat. http://rapidshare.com/files/302167682/twitexec.rar.html Ive included a .exe of the program for quick use, but dont forget to make a shortcut to it so you can add the 3 arguments.
