Recently I've been playing about with Twitter and so have some of the other guys at work.
Twitter's great butÂ but along with the blogs, facebook, myspace, MSN and whatever else there'd be sooo many places I'd have to update my status.
In reality, the only place I even half regularlyÂ keep my status updated is in my MSN IM client, soÂ I got to thinking, what if I could use MSN to update twitter and then use twitter to update my blogs (and possibly everything else - I haven't tried everything else yet though I have to admit).
Well after a short amount of time I found a very nice script for Messenger PluPlus! Live (http://www.msgpluslive.net/) called Twit4Live (http://www.msgpluslive.net/scripts/view/315-Twit4Live/)Â which allowed me to update twitter from MSN as I wanted to.
Then I found the Twitter Tag WordPress plugin for my blog (http://www.waltervos.com/downloads/wordpress-plugins/twitter-tag/), a winning combination - if only it worked...
To be fair, Twitter Tag will work on a large number of blogs, but because it has to do a remote file include (which a lot of shared hosting companies turn off for good reason), it didn't work on mine.
A short time later though I fixed this and everything's hunky dory (so long as you have Linux based hosting).
So if you want toÂ update your blogÂ with your twitter status and theÂ original Twitter Tag plugin doesn't work, why not giveÂ this modified version a try insteadÂ :)
