Sending values to your Twitter account is now part of the clouding services provided by Lagarto-MAX. Similar to the rest of cloud-based actions already supported by our Extended Automation Platform, users can now push current values to Twitter by means of the excellent Python Twitter Tools (PTT) developed by Mike Verdone.

In order do add this functionality to Lagarto-MAX, PTT has to be installed by simply running "
twitter -firstname.lastname@example.org This is my first tweet from PTT
This action will grab your account information in the computer so that Lagarto-MAX or any of the programmed actions will not need to know anything about it.

Integration with Twitter was one of the most demanded features due to the possibilities offered by Twitter regarding integration with other cloud-based platforms and also for the ability to redirect tweets to an e-mail address or cell phone.
I hope you enjoy it!
