Getting Started

The first thing you need to do is add to your roster:


In order to post, follow, leave, etc… you must first login. You do this by IMming the following message:

twlogin yourusername yourpassword

After a successful login, you can post using the post command as follows:

post Hey look, I'm posting from twitterspy.

twitterspy will tell you when you have successfully posted a message.

As a shortcut, if your message begins with @, it’s always assumed to be a post:

@dlsspy Look at me responding to a post.


Though it’s not recommended, you can post without having to start every post with the post by enabling autopost using autopost on.

Any text you enter that cannot be recognized as a command will be blasted to twitter. Some people really like this. Personally, I find it dangerous.
