Doesn't make much sense, as it is a client thing.

I've made a script like that for Irssi, which works in any channel (

Adding that kind of support for BitlBee wouldn't make much sense...

Bitlbee is a twitter client, which maks support make perfect sense for me.

Thanks for the script but the issue is that I want the statistics offered by having an account and an api key. This is information best stored in bitlbee, and my irc client is not scripting friendly.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Honestly I don't think this belongs in BitlBee. Too much complexity, and anyone who disagrees would probably send in a patch that would do this with blocking I/O which would of course be unacceptable.

So let's just mark it wontfix.
