Windows Live Writer: Tweeter

imageThere’s a new plug-in for Windows Live Writer; which is nice because it’s something I believe should’ve been offered natively with Windows Live Writer, but that’s why you've guys writing plug-ins.

This plug-in is very small at 28k and seems to work as intended.

MyBitlyTweeter.dll is the DLL… just drop it in the Windows Live Writer plug-ins folder to install it, or you can run the default installer and wait 5 minutes.

I believe this is a good option for Windows Live Writer, and should thank the author for doing a good job on it.
