Treegger setup on Adium Treegger IM is a Twitter instant messaging service that allows you to chat directly (without sending tweet) with your twitter friends using XMPP client (such as iChat, Pigdim or Adium).

Treegger delevoper Jason Chase says :

"It might sound redundant with other IM service such as MSN or Yahoo, but we realized that we don't have same "relations" or social network when using Twitter (compare to Yahoo/MSN). Twitter "relations" are not as close as those we have when chatting with Yahoo or whatever, and sometimes we need just directly chat with those twitter buddies. So we decided to fill the gap and provide a simple service as proof of our technology (since our business is about to sale massive messaging infrastructure for social startups)."

You can chat with online friends (bidirectional follow relationship). When you chat you don't post tweet, you directly send message to you friend without publishing it in public somewhere.

Treegger does not store any data, credentials or messages, all contents just transit between you and Treegger servers using secure connection (TLS).

WLM With WLM "no update" patch, Windows Live Messenger will stop forcing you to update to v2009.

If you're unsatisfied with Windows Live Messenger 2009, either because you keep getting errors, because it's a resource hog or simply because you don't like it, you might want to roll back to v8. But v8 won't let you sign in unless you upgrade to v2009, which you were trying to get rid of in the first place.

With this patch, Messenger will stop forcing you to update. It works only with v8.5.1302.1018 (the last pre-2009 version) and v8.1.0178.00. The patch is simple and safe, it only changes the version information, making Messenger pretend it's v2009 so MS leaves you alone.

You can remove Messenger with the included WLM uninstaller. It supports all versions but it's only really needed for v2009 (earlier versions can be normally removed through Control Panel).

Just this Monday, the online community was abuzz with news of a worm rapidly spreading through Yahoo! Messenger. The threat was so serious that BitDefender saw fit to release a standalone removal tool.

Security researchers from Vietnamese antivirus vendor Bkis are again amongst the first to report on the new attacks, which, this time, have extended beyond YM and affect Skype too. "Still using the method of inserting malicious URLs into chat windows like [their alias for the worm discovered earlier this week], however, social engineering skill of the Worm, this time, is much more sophisticated than the previous one," they warn..."
