Twitter On Pidgin

This post of mine is similar to the previous one. You can use Twitter on Pidgin. For this, do the following:

1. Install pidgin-mbpurple plugin, from Synaptic Package Manager or aptitude (for Ubuntu/ Debian). You can also download it from here. Another option is to check the plugin twitgin from Tools-> Plugins.

2. Restart Pidgin.

3. Add a new account, choosing the protocol TwitterIM. Enter your Twitter username and password under 'Basic', and set your proxy under 'Proxy' tab.

4. Check this account in Accounts window.

Happy tweeting. :)
