Capture a Twitter feed into a zMUD window
 
Mud that I play has been using Twitter to send out messages and I would like to try and script a way for these messages to be captured and placed in a zMUD window. Anyone have any ideas of how to go about doing this?

Thanks!

I don't use twitter myself, but it is fully web based instead of having a program, no?
That might make it hard to establish a direct COM connection.

You might have better luck using CMUD, but the issue is still going to be how are you going to retrieve the twitter data.
Once you have it, printing it is easy.
