Instant Messaging

Configure your IM client for Twitter

You can chat with online friends (bidirectional follow relationship). You don’t post tweet, you directly send message to you friend without publishing it somewhere.
Treegger does not store any data, credentials or messages, all contents just transit between you and our servers using secure connection (TLS).
As twitter does not provide digest authentication feature, you should send your login/pass in plain text using SSL/TLS connection.
Don’t worry we never store any password and nobody can access to them as the connection always remains secure.

Any XMPP Client

For any XMPP client software you should use following setup:
Jabber ID: [your twitter account name]@twitter (for example ‘jchasetg@twitter’)
Connect Server: with port 5223
Allow plaintext authentication (twitter doesn’t provide any other authentication method yet)
SSL/TLS (old style) required and selected


Configuration is exactly the same as Google Talk except:
Screen name: use your Twitter name (here jchasetg)
Server: twitter
In advanced tab, enter ‘’ in the Connect Server box (be sure that server is still ‘twitter’ in the previous tab)



Create a new Jabber account.
Set the user name (here jchasetg), and the password. You can’t set the server here (you have to go to the ‘Configuration’ panel by clicking on the icon on the bottom left).

In the configuration panel, set the login server manually to ‘twitter‘ and also specify the connection host with ‘‘ port ‘5223‘.


Create Jabber account, use same configuration as any XMPP client and use in option panel port 5223 with plaintext, old style SSL and required SSL/TLS checked.


Configuration is exactly the same as Google Talk
Just replace server “” by “” and use [your twitter account name]@twitter (for example jchasetg@twitter) as Jabber ID and use your twitter account password.


On account property window, select connection panel. Manually specify server host/port set to, select ‘Legacy SSL’ in the combobox and allow plaintext authentication ‘over encrypted connection’.
