Twitter from Vim is just a simple client for Twitter. If you want to update your Twitter status, check public timeline or your friends timeline all right from within your Vim, then this script is for you!

Requirements:

Vim (compiled with Python bindings)

INSTALLATION:

Extract the tarball into your ~/.vim/plugin

In order to update your status or fetch your friends time line you have to set your Twitter accounts username/password pair, you can set them using:

:let g:twitterusername='username'
:let g:twitterpassword='password'

or put 'em in your ~/.vimrc

USER NOTES (useful tips from a user of this script):

Here's what I added to my _vimrc:

" helpful mappings for using twitter.vim
" see http://vim.sourceforge.net/scripts/script.php?script_id=1853

let g:twitterusername='username'
let g:twitterpassword=''

map < unique > < eader >tp < Esc >:let g:twitterpassword=inputsecret('password? ')< cr >
map < unique > < eader >tw < Esc >:execute 'TwitterStatusUpdate ' . inputdialog('Enter a Twitter status message:')< cr >
map < unique > < eader >tf < Esc >:TwitterFriendsTimeline< cr >

tp will prompt you for your twitter password so you don't have to hardcode it in a file, tw will prompt you for your status message and tf will list your friend's twitters.

What's New in This Release:

BUGFIX: It's now possible to pass statuses containing ' (single-quotation).
