What is TwitterCraft?

Like Twitter? Like Minecraft?
I have the solution...TwitterCraft!

TwitterCraft is a fully-functional plugin for Bukkit. Using "twitter4j," I expanded on previous attempts at a plugin like this and made it as simple as possible.

/tweet [message] - send a tweet!

How do I set it up?

1. Open up a command prompt program. On a mac it is called "Terminal."

2. A console window should pop up with the following text:

Last login: [Some time] on ttys000
ComputerName:~ YourName$

3. In terminal, type the following text, replacing (space) with a space:


4. Now drag the "GetAccessToken.jar" file from the "TwitterCraft" folder into the console, and press enter. If all goes well it will open up your web browser to a website on You will be forced to sign in if you aren't already.

5. Click Authorize app. It should take you to a different page with some numbers on it. Copy those numbers, and paste them back into the terminal where it says "[PIN]: " Press enter.

6. If it succeeds, it will save a file named "" on your computer in your home directory. The console will tell you where it is exactly.

7. Find the "" file and put it in your server directory, the same folder that includes "ops.txt," "," and "plugins."

8. Back to the "TwitterCraft" folder, open up the folder entitled "plugins." Upon opening it you will find a single "jar" file, "TwitterCraft.jar." Drag that directly into the server's "plugins" folder. Note that you don't do anything with the GetAccessToken.jar file after step 4, do not place it in "plugins."

9. Launch your server and log in. To tweet, type "/tweet [message]." It will send the tweet directly to Twitter, no harm done.

10. Enjoy!

Sounds cool...does it have permissions?
twitter.tweet - lets you tweet. about source?

Okay then!

    I am currently in progress of making something similar to this.

    just figured out a simple way of doing it on windows, change the startup script you use to start the server to "GetAccessToken.jar" instead of bukkit ;)

    I'm planning to take this on if I can't find a plugin that does it already. It seems the owner has other stuff to contend with and cannot maintain it any more.

    @ddragon15: Go

    Waiting for a moth? Have you checked the walls? *badumtssss* Look for another plugin, buddy.

    Update: I'm not going to maintain it. Look or beg for another developer to make one.

    Would be nice if this actually worked for windows. When I drag the getaccesstoken.jar in the console and press enter, it doesn't ask for a pin afterwards.

    Are you sure it didn't work? Tell me what the console said when you ran GetAccessToken.jar.
