Chitter.im is a bot that runs on Gtalk and brings Twitter updates to your Gtalk account. This is particularly for users that are on Gtalk most of the time and keep going back and forth for updates on Twitter. Apart from helping you view tweets, it also lets you send tweets, quote tweets, and send direct messages. Additionally, it also helps you to easily follow and not follow other Twitter users and display incoming friendship. Overall, the bot lets you control your Twitter account without having to actually be on Twitter. Pretty much anything you want to do, you can do from the Gtalk conversion window.
