This plugin posts build results to Twitter.Each Twitter update will contain build result, its build number, and job name. Optionally, the build URL can be included in which case it will be run through See the demo user (other).

The Twitter plugin uses the configuration of the core Mailer in order to determine the build URL.

This plugin uses Twitter4J, created by Yusuke Yamamoto.

Then execute java -jar auth.jar. This will give you a URL to authorize Hudson to tweet with this user account. Twitter will then give you a pin to give to auth.jar. Then you will be presented with a Token and TokenSecret. Copy these into the appropriate fields in your Hudson setup.
