This is a part of the microblog-purple project which aims to add microblog support to libpurple based clients. It allows you to quickly receive and update your Twitter messages from a Pidgin conversation window. It is available for Mac, Windows and Linux. The project home page only links to the installation instructions for Ubuntu, so here’s how you install it on Fedora 11.
Install the plugin using YUM
Enable the plugin
- open Pidgin, go to Tools –> Plugins and enable the Twitgin plugin
Configure your Twitter account
Enable the account and connect
Verify the SSL certificate
Done, you’re now logged in and you can start tweeting!
