We’re very sorry, but have have decided to stop development on this. Twitter is changing their API too often, and we don’t have the time to keep up.
It’s open source, so it would be fantastic if someone cares to take over and update it. If you do, please let me know and I’ll update it here 🙂
UPDATE 01: Courtesy of Dennis Fischer from Ableton Live, we have a cool update to the Live device! You can automatically tweet the clip name currently playing. Great for DJs. Just Download it again if this update interests you.
Want to send a tweet directly from Max/MSP and Ableton Live? This Max To Twitter patch and Live to Twitter device will get your tweets up and away!
A while back Matthew Eddey and I developed a patch to send tweets from Max/MSP. When Twitter changed their API the patch stopped working. However, thanks to Mathias Brüssel and his awesome Ruby programming skills, it’s working again! He has put in a ton of hard work on this. Thanks, Mathias!
getting it working
1. Download and install the [ajm.ruby] external by Adam Murray.
2. Download the Max + Live To Twitter patches, place the whole folder in your Max search path. You can move the Max For Live Device to where you keep your other devices.
3. Get your Twitter access codes by going to http://dev.twitter.com/apps/ and registering yourself an app.
- Make sure your application type is set to client
- Make sure your default access type is set to read & write
4. Now you need to copy your access codes into your patch
- Find your consumer and secret keys on your new app’s main page
- Find your access token and access token secret by clicking my access tokens in the right side bar
- Once the codes are copied and pasted, save your patch so that it stays in memory and you don’t have to do it again.
- For the Live To Twitter device, you will need to go into edit mode, enter the codes and save the patch.
That should be it, type your tweet and hit “Tweet”. Have fun and don’t hesitate to say if you’re having issues or want to share some cool projects you’ve done using it.
