Publishes tweets when libraries are updated on npm.


I published a library recently that didn't get nearly as many followers as expected.

A person of lesser hubris might have assumed that the library was was less useful than they initially assumed. Luckily I didn't make this false assumption...

The problem was that there aren't enough tweets when Node.js packages are published or updated

npm-tweets is an open-source twitter bot that tweets as packages are updated on!/nodenpm

I've open-sourced npm-tweets so that anyone can easily setup an npm Twitter Bot.

Creating the Bot:

var NPMTweets = require('npm-tweets').NPMTweets;
npmTweets = new NPMTweets({
    consumer_key: 'CONSUMER_KEY',
    consumer_secret: 'CONSUMER_SECRET',
    access_token_key: 'TOKEN_KEY',
    access_token_secret: 'TOKEN_SECRET',
    filterfunction(package){ return === 'npm-tweets'; }
