Twitter is an extension for SDL Tridion 2011 CME that connects to the Twitter service. The goal of the extension is to display notifications from the user's Twitter network and to allow the user to post updates.
Twitter extension adds two buttons to the ribbon toolbar in the "Community" tab.
Notifications button will start/stop listening to Twitter notifications. It will first show 10 last updates in the message center and then will be checking for more updates every 30 seconds (note, that Twitter allows maximum 300 requests to the server per user an hour).
Share button will prompt the user for an update to be posted on the user's profile.
