A few years ago, I discovered this wonderful way to tweet from Quicksilver. But then Twitter changed something something OAuth something something at the end of August 2010. I stumbled upon this workaround:
1. sign up on SuperTweet.net and authorize it with your twitter account.
2. open up Keychain Access and make a new entry (just enter SuperTweet as the item name, SuperTweet username, SuperTweet password)
3. edit your current Tweet script to something like shown below (basically changing references from Twitter.com to api.SuperTweet.net). Bonus tip: you can hard-code geolocation to your tweet, which is useful if you always Quicksilverly tweet from the same place/s, or if you feel like lying about where you are.
I would have liked if the tweet entry still said “via Quicksilver” like the good old days, but “via MyAuth API proxy” sounds nerdy enough for me. It’ll do for now, I guess.UPDATE November 11 2011:
Since I upgraded to OS X 10.7 Lion, the original script above failed because Apple got rid of the Keychain Scripting app (probably for security reasons). So, you’ll just need to hardcode the username and password for SuperTweet into the applescript directly, instead of trying to fetch it from the Keychain. And, no, that’s not my real password:
