Today I came across a great add-on for Emacs: TwIt. TwIt is quite simply a Twitter plug-in for Emacs with an optional mode. You can post tweets, follow your friends tweets, list your friends and your followers, perform searches, retrieve @msgs and direct messages, and even use multiple accounts.
This is great news for me. Now I can, once again, sink down into the comfortable lisp environment of Emacs and continue to live my life inside of Emacs. With Conkeror, Emacs, a good .emacs file and the right add-ons installed you really don't need any other software.
So if your an Emacs-geek like myself, head on to emacswiki and grab TwIt.
