I don't see what an IM client has to do with microblogging. If you ask me, bitlbee shouldn't support twitter either.

Of course there's always twitter<->facebook sync. Maybe bitlbee -> twitter -> facebook ? OR what I do: bitlbee -> gtalk) -> twitter -> facebook ?

"IF" bitlbee devs want to support microblogging, I recommend they simply support and that will cover just about everything else.

I second this--I was just about to add another ticket about this, and thought I should check for an existing one first. I have no problem with going through, provided that I can post to different accounts individually (facebook allows longer posts than twitter does). It would be nice to be able to do it without logging into a 3rd party service to do it, but if that's what it takes, its fine with me.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Closing all protocol request tickets.

For most of the requested protocols, it's likely we won't have time and/or interest to implement them, and some tickets have stayed open here for years when they have libpurple implementations, or even as third party plugins. Implementing protocols in the core is far from a priority nowadays, although I hope we can make it easier to write third party plugins. As always, anyone who is interested in implementing bitlbee plugins for these can do so, and we're willing to help (join irc!)
