A simple daemon that polls for updated Twitter statuses and posts them to a Campfire room.
Install the gem and its dependencies:
sudo gem install camptweet
From the commandline, run:
This creates a 'camptweetd' file in the current directory.
Edit this file to specify the Twitter user screen names for which you'd like to grab status information, the desired Campfire subdomain and room name, and the Campfire email/password with which this daemon should use to connect.
The latest Twitter statuses for the users you have specified will be broadcast into your Campfire room. Nohup and background this script excecution to keep it going (nohup ./camptweetd &).
