Addicted to twitter? Ever been playing WoW and wanted to tweet your achievements or screenshots but just couldn’t be bothered to tab out? Well then I think I have found the answer to you prayers. That answer is TweetCraft, a new addon that allows you to tweet from within World of Warcraft.
TweetCraft also allows you to do a couple of other pretty nift things other than just regular tweeting from the game. Though there are some downsides to the addon unfortunately. We’ll cover whats good and what’s annoying about the addon after the break.
So after stumbling across this addon and reading up on it I decided to create a twitter account for A Tranquil Spirit. Anyway, here are some of the things that make this addon a valuable tool to twitter users.
Send/receive Tweets in-game. (Immediate sending reloads your UI…this is one of those bad things.)
Queue Tweets to send when it’s more convenient for you. (like after the raid is finished FTW!)
Upload in-game screenshots using TwitPic.
AutoTweet when you log in, enter an instance or get an achievement.
Extensible so that AddOn authors can register messages or events to AutoTweet.
Doing pretty much anything with the addon will cause a UI reload which if your running a ton of addons can be very annoying.
Have to install with an installer instead of dragging and dropping the addon folder into your /WorldofWarcraft/Interface/Addons folder.(Shouldn’t really be a problem but to be on the safe side you can perform a quick scan before & after the install)
All in all it’s a pretty interesting addon and it’s actually been the deciding factor between wether or not I created a twitter account for the blog. Thanks to this addon I will be doing so. You can find the twitter account by searching for tranqdertt in twitter or by clicking on the name as it’s linked and all that jazz.
