This a script that posts your Twitter status on Adium using PHP.

  • Handles multiple accounts
  • Allows only unprotected accounts
  • Allows retweets and @replies to be hidden
  • Allows API retweets to be fully displayed (not limited by the 140 characters which cuts off retweets from API)

  1. Install the script
  2. Type and enter "%_twitter" to generate the ~/.twitterStatusX/config configuration file.
  3. Set the configuration file per instructions in the comments in the file.
  4. Type "%_twitter" to display the most recent valid tweet(s) from your configured Twitter account(s).


Version 1.2
  • Removed functionality for protected accounts as OAuth is now required

Version 1.1
  • Created a program directory to store files in the user's home directory
  • Placed configuration file, with comments, into the program directory
  • Placed stored tweet files into the program directory to prevent reboots from removing stored files

You need the SimpleXML extension (that provides the function) of PHP enabled to use this plugin.

There is no need for SimpleXML. Please take a look at the source to see for yourself.

Well... maybe I forgot to set something up. But I looked at the source, because the script wasn't working for me. In the moment it needs to fetch the XML file from Twitter it needs the 'simplexml_load_string' method to decode it into an array:

It looks like only quarter of my post made it. Basically when I remove the '@' in line 126 I'm getting

Fatal error: Call to undefined function simplexml_load_string() in /Users/user/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/Scripts/TwitterStatusX.AdiumScripts/Contents/Resources/twitter.php on line 126

That function is provided by SimpleXML according to the link I posted.

Cool - thanks. I must have been sort of nuts when I replied. I see the line now. I'll see if I can remove that dependency.

What version of PHP are you running?
