There has been a crucial update. This version doesn’t work anymore. Update available here
First off, a big thanks to Matthew Eddey for helping with the Ruby script and Twitter API. Also to all the people that helped along the way.
This should work on Max 5 and Mac OS and Window.
how to send a tweet directly from Max/MSP
I used the Ruby programming language to access Twitter’s API. To use Ruby within Max/MSP you need to download the [ajm.ruby] external by Adam Murray. After downloading, follow the “INSTALL.txt” instructions to correctly install it.
Finally, download the MaxToTwitter patch.
That should be it, enjoy sending tweets from Max!
If you use it in a project don’t be shy to include my name or link back to here 🙂
