Announcing TwitNotes – a Twitter plug-in for Notes 8

The below screenshot should speak for itself but in case it doesn’t let me explain… Last night and tonight I have been writing a Twitter plug-in for the Notes 8 Standard sidebar. I got tired of using BeTwittered and really wanted a real Notes 8 sidebar plug-in as I have some other ideas I want to incorporate. Once I finalize the plug-in tomorrow and get it on an update site you can install it if you’re interested.

Initial features:

  • Pure SWT application
  • Integration with the Accounts API
  • Preferences via Notes 8 Preference pages (auto refresh (yes/no), refresh interval, number of posts to show, refresh after posting).
  • Shows the Twitter profile image of the poster.
  • Posts to Twitter.
