Tweeting about HUDDLES

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Although, I haven’t been a user of twitter before, I got to thinking about how one might update a twitter stream from a LSL script in Second Life. It took me a little time to figure it out, but it seems quite easy. Someone posted a solution to the Second Life forums a couple years back.

The key line of code is this:

llHTTPRequest(“http://” + llEscapeURL(user) + “:”+llEscapeURL(password) + “@twitter.com/statuses/update.xml”, [HTTP_METHOD, "POST", HTTP_MIMETYPE, "application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8"], “status=”+llEscapeURL(msg));

User is your twitter name, password is your password and msg is the message you want to send.

I’m thinking that it might be nice to add this to the EZ Animator Deluxe, but I’m wondering if anyone would use it and what features would they want. What do you think?

Oh, by the way, you can follow me on twitter, my name is KeikiAtHuddles.
