Opening a ticket for testing/discussion/proposal of a new plugin, MythTwitter?. Should run fine on either .22 or Trunk.
In short, MythTwitter? is a simple frontend to the Twitter microblogging service. If a user has a login at Twitter, they can post tweets from the timeline (Info Center->Twitter) or with the Twitter "miniplayer" (unbound by default, bind a key in the key editor).
In short, apply the patch and compile plugins with --enable-all or --enable-mythtwitter. Open the timeline and you should see the public twitter timeline. Even without an account, you can view the public timeline or the timeline of specific users. Edit your login information to have access to your personal timeline, friend timeline, friending options, and the ability to send tweets.
This adds an interesting/fun social aspect to using Myth, allowing one to send tweets from any MythUI screen. Once we have a notification widget, I will see about hooking incoming friend tweets/direct messages in to that.
The only bug I am aware of at the moment is that if the buttonlist is being populated and the plugin is exited, it is possible to segfault the frontend. Presumably I'm not cleaning something up right, but I will track this down before too long.
