POE::Component::Server::Twirc - Twitter/IRC gateway
POE::Component::Server::Twirc provides an IRC/Twitter gateway. Twitter friends are added to a channel and messages they post on twitter appear as channel messages in IRC. The IRC interface supports several Twitter features, including posting status updates, following and un-following Twitter feeds, enabling and disabling mobile device notifications or retweets, sending direct messages, and querying information about specific Twitter users.
Friends who are also followers are given "voice" as a visual clue in IRC.
