I spent some time over the weekend building a TwitterBot, an object that relays any chat it hears on to Twitter and that passes any tweets targeted at it back into Second Life.
You can see the resulting object in the SLashup area on Eduserv Island.
I have a couple more bits of work to do on the code, making it configure itself from a notecard and allowing people to register their Twitter account names with it, then I'll make it all freely available.
To track messages sent from the current TwitterBot on Eduserv Island, you need to follow 'eduservisland' in Twitter. Note that we'll be using this to feed out the discussion in the symposium follow-up meeting to Twitter later today. Again, this will be very experimental.
