Indigo Tweet!

This is a good example of how to integrate your Indigo system into Twitter!

Okay, it’s only a one way integration, any Insteon device that supports a “turn on” or “Turn off” command will automatically be Tweeted when turned on or off, with the appropriate message…

For example:

Desktop lamp was turned on

Desktop lamp was turned off

And yes, there isn’t too much sophistication here with this example script.  Please feel free to make suggestions, and comments…  I’d be happy to consider them for a newer version of the script…
