TwitVim is a Vim plugin that allows you to post to Twitter and view Twitter timelines. It is an enhancement of vimscript #2124 by Travis Jeffery. Credit goes to Travis for the original script concept and implementation.

TwitVim supports most of the features of a typical Twitter client, including: 

- Friends, User, Direct Message, Mentions, and Favorites timelines 
- Twitter Search 
- Replying and retweeting
- Hashtags (jump to search timeline) 
- In reply to (See which tweet an @-reply is for.) 
- Opening links in a browser 
- User profile display 
- Twitter List viewing and managing 
- Trending topics
- Timeline filtering



Plugin commands:

- :PosttoTwitter - This command will prompt you for a message to send to Twitter. 
- :CPosttoTwitter - This command posts the current line in the current buffer to Twitter. 
- :BPosttoTwitter - This command posts the current buffer to Twitter. 
- :FriendsTwitter - View friends timeline. 
- :UserTwitter - View your timeline. 
- :MentionsTwitter - View @-mentions. 
- :PublicTwitter - View public timeline. 
- :DMTwitter - View direct messages.
