Re: Announcing: Events component
I think the easiest way would be to have a simple plugin that would simply store these two values for other plugins to use.
One could write a plugin that adds a menu option to the settings for the profile plugin, and it would just say “twitter settings” and you enter your account & password in that, and other plugins could simply check if the fields exist and use twitter if they do.
Or maybe it’ll just have one function: tweet($userid, $status), ‘if function exists’ is an easy check in php and so other plugins can check if the twitter plugin is installed and use it if it is.
Just throwing this out for discussion.
