BitlBee brings IM (instant messaging) to IRC clients. It's a great solution for people who have an IRC client running all the time and don't want to run an additional MSN/AIM/whatever client.

What's New in This Release:В· Twitter fixes (Twitter deprecated the API call BitlBee used to fetch the contact list).
В· Twitter enhancement: Ability to RT/reply to older tweets from someone (help set show_ids).
В· Lots of other small stuff.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
