twitter2lj.txt

Some of you have been asking me about the script I use to post my Twitter Tweets to LiveJournal ("friends"-protected entry). It's based on a pretty simple script that I created by combining two similar scripts, one by greck (birdcage.pl) and the other by maeglin73 (tweets2lj.pl). I've received permission from both of the authors to share their work, so here's the script I use: twitter2lj.pl.

Take the script, rename it to "twitter2lj.pl", replace TWITTER_USER, TWITTER_PASS, LJ_USER, and LJ_PASS with your username(s) and passwords. Set it up via cron (or some other scheduling application) to run at 23:59 each evening.

Yes, I'm running it from my Mac (which is Unix-based). Yes, it will probably run on Windows. No, I don't know how. If anyone uses this or something similar on Windows, feel free to leave a comment here so others can benefit from the knowledge.
