What is it?

Peepd is twitter in an irc window. It's really easy to connect to and use.

How do I start using it?

To begin using it, first you'll have to connect to it.

To connect to it, type(whilst in irssi, or weechat if you're into that sorta thing) :

 /connect twitter.redbrick.dcu.ie 6667 <your_twitter_password> <your_twitter_username>

You should see something like the image below display in your status window:

Then a #Twitter should automatically open, you'll the username of everyone you're following appear where channel users usually would, like the image below:

After a minute or so, you should se e your and your followers recent tweets appear in the window. It hilights your username when you get a tweet directed at you, which is handy. As seen in the image below:

Direct messages, or DMs, appear in a private window, they'll keep appearing every time you connect to peepd until you delete them through the twitter website. You'll also need to manage your followers from there too.
