Twitter From Word too!

Someone took out the Twitter stick and hit Microsoft Word as well. Enjoy this version of the MS Office Twitter client at word + twitter. The page is in Hungarian but if you use a translation service, you can make it through well enough. Just download the Word doc in the post and take it out of design mode.

Update 7/16/2009: The page seems to have disappeared. But it's easy to recreate the Twitter code in MS Word. If anyone wants it, let me know.

  1. Hey JP, thanks for sharing this.
    If you have any idea how to fix the issue of accented characters (áéíóöőúüű), post about it pls. : )

    • I'll take a look at it and see if anything can be done.

    • I don't think it can be done, moshi. For some reason, the add-in won't take those characters, even though I can paste them directly into Twitter. It must have something to do with the xml POST operation. Even redefining the character set didn't help.

  2. I have to agree. I did not have too much time but tried my best to solve this issue, changed the encoding in content-type, tried to find a link to an encoder object just it is in .Net – no success.

    Anyway, twitter API is great.
