I was working on a plug-in for Rhythmbox to send notice to
because identica and twitter have similar API it will work with
too ( i have only tested

this plugin adds your accounts to rhythmbox toolbar as buttons and
can send current music information to by clicking on them

get it from here
see a sample notice here:
Wonderfully done! It works perfectly with my Identica account
( I've even made an Arch Linux
of it for AUR (Arch Linux User Repository), but I have a few problems
before I submit it:

     * What version should I call it?
     * Should I have it pull the latest version from Git (Arch is
       like that), or a stable package hosted elsewhere? If a stable
       package, what should the version number be? 0.1, 1.0, 0.5...?
     * The plugin description in Rhythmbox is "Something!". It would be
       nice if you fixed this to say something other than...
something :P.
     * This part isn't a problem, but I /LOVE/ the edit-before-you-post
       feature. When I used LiveTweeter for Songbird (back before it
       insanely bloated and buggy and when it supported Linux), this is
       something I've always wanted to do. Adding context to what I'm
       listening to is a great way to not annoy people by giving you
       of a reason to mindlessly post what you're listening to :P.
     * In my PKGBUILD (the file makepkg on Arch reads to build the
       package), I have it rename the plugin directory to
       "rhythmbox-microblogger". Is this okay with you? I figured that
       should keep it organized, and the plugin source/plugin window
       still show you as the author.

Keep up the good work! Please respond :)!

* I have added verison to README and
* latest version is on git (Is it ok?)
* I forgot to change that string :D did it now.
* when i change the name of directory from rhythmbox-microblogger to
something else. it returns some errors in finding images. you did not
had any problem?

* I had added a new feature today: threading
the older one made Rhythmbox gui stop responding in the time of sending
a notice but this version doesn't

Oh, sorry about that. I downloaded the source archive instead of cloning your git repository the first time, so the folder the files were in wasn't named "rhythmbox-microblogger". Cloning from git fixed this. Thanks for the improvements! I've uploaded the PKGBUILD to AUR here: You did a great job on the plugin and I'll be sure to spread the word :D!

One small bug: Andrew from WebUpd8 found that it didn't post to twitter. He said this:

Hmmm it doesn't work. When clicked, the button in Rhythmbox turns into "Sent HTTP Error 404: Not Found". I think it's because Twitter will soon (if not already) only support OAuth for posting to Twitter via external clients.
