Yeller is a PHP script that lets a group post messages to a single Twitter account using Yammer. It does this by searching Yammer messages for a special tag (by default #yell) and sending any messages it finds to Twitter. It also pulls replies back from Twitter so the group can participate in conversations.
- Easy command line interface for setup.
- "Signs" messages by the person who sent them.
- Individual Twitter @ usernames can be displayed in signatures.
- Public tag and signature format can be customized.
What is this?
It’s a PHP script. PHP 5 or greater is required. It has only been tested on Mac and Linux.
