Yahoo Messenger Twitter status plugin...shortly after our series of articles on Yahoo! Messenger Skins I playing around with some graphics from Fool's House, while doing so I whipped up some more YIM skins (bee's Knitting, bee's Shark and bee's Cowboy) during this time I finally got access to Yahoo! Messenger from my Yahoo! Mail account... woohoo! I was hoping this feature would inspire me back onto the Yahoo wagon but I quickly categorised it as "too little, too late" and promptly trotted off to to blow some dust bunnies away in the hope I would find a distraction that I could get my teeth stuck into... and I found it... all thanks to Twitter and Andy's Yahoo Messenger Twitter Sync Plugin.

coffee_bee @ TwitterI'm a Twitter addict, it's a great way to stay up to date with what my friends are doing, yes I could fire up any one of the numerous Instant Messenger programs that I have but its not as simple as that, it feels time zones are always against me or my friends are at work when I have a moment to talk and vice versa or we're just too dang busy with life... take my dear wee friend Twendy. Twendy's a moderator over at, every now and then she passes through our forum, she's on my Yahoo Messenger friends list, also lives in NZ so time zones aren't an issue.. but work and life zones are, yes we email spasmodically but I miss out on all her little day to day happenings... so in kicks Twitter which keeps me right up to date with all the bits I miss out on :)

Yahoo Messenger and Twitter sync pluginI've written articles about Twitter over at bee.geek, what am I doing? covered my introduction to Twitter, when I wrote my head chirps... it had just started to dawn on me that I was missing something from my new twittering life, a way to tie Twitter and Yahoo! Messenger together.. so I leaned over my desk and started nagging Andy, a week or so later he released a Yahoo Messenger Twitter Sync Plugin which is currently pending approval at the Yahoo's Messenger gallery, it may or may not get approved.. but until it's ya or na you can access his YIM Twitter Sync here which will let you update your Twitter via your Yahoo! Messenger status, and also when you update Twitter your YIM status will reflect your new "tweet"... seriously cool! You can read more about it here or check out my latest bee.geek article Yahoo Messenger + Twitter = tweet tweet... meow?
