I’m using IRC via Bitlbee to do instant messaging in Emacs. I’ve been using the ui-fix branch of Bitlbee. Here’s how to add an Identi.ca account:
account add twitter kensanata foo account list account 6 set base_url http://identi.ca/api account 6 set mode chat account 6 set oauth false save account 6 on
Instead of “6” you need to use the correct account number.
If you already have a Twitter account with the same handle, one of the two will be called #chat_000 instead of #identica_kensanata – join us on #bitlbee @ freenode and help us fix it.
Update: I’ve been working on a patch attached to ticket #648 (using Twitter and Identica accounts with the same username) to add support for an Identica protocol.
account add identica kensanata foo account identica set mode chat save account identica on
Update: A modified form of my patch has been applied.
