    Hi, I was wondering how hard it would be to code a plugin that would get tweets from a twitter account and broadcast them on the server.

    I'm not very experienced with java, and I don't plan on doing this myself, I just think it's a good concept for a plugin. It could be used to broadcast news if your server has a twitter account or broadcasting the Mojang team's latest tweets.

    Anyone thought of this before or know if it's possible or not?

    Pretty sure it's possible using the Twitter API.

    Is the Twitter API still open for everybody?

    Okay! I got it to work! But haven't touched it up yet... It uses the Twitter4J library for connecting to the Twitter API.

    Will post when its fully complete!
