How to install pidgin-twitter-status

Introduction
------------

Requirements:

Pidgin, Perl and the following two Perl modules, which you may have to install manually:

    * XML::RSS
    * LWP::Simple 

Details
-------
Is Pidgin Perl enabled?

In Pidgin, navigate to Help->About and find Perl: Enabled If Perl is not enabled, you may have to install Perl and then re-install Pidgin.
Install XML::RSS and LWP::Simple

This depends on your operating system, but could be as simple as

# cpan XML::RSS
# cpan LWP::Simple

If your OS or Perl installation uses a package system it's recommended you install the modules using that, if possible.
