Does Miranda support private messages in Twitter? I can chat on the website, but I can't send and receive messages in miranda even after adding a contact manually.

Try to enable "twits as messages" option.

dartraiden, It doesn't help. Tweets work, but private messages don't. Are they supposed to work? Does anybody use twitter as a regular messenger?

I remember I once installed the twitter plugin for this same purpose - I had a person whom I used the private chat with. To my disappointment, the twitter plugin did not support private messages back then (I didn't even consider the possibility of that when I installed it so I was quite surprised).

Unless it has been coded in in the past year, I think private messages are not supported.

Vulpix, I was surprised too, because this is what you expect from Miranda in the first place :) I guess Twitter is just not so popular as a messenger. Actually I don't need it so much either, just wanted to test something.

dartraiden, Thanks. They are actually called "Direct messages" in english. They are described here (or here in russian). In fact it is just an instant messenger. The API is open.

Yep, Miranda is now receiving incoming messages, but only on logging on (not in realtime), and every time it receives all messages from the latest to the earliest (i.e in reverse order). Sending doesn't work. Guess it's too early to report bugs. But I can see what I needed now, thanks ghazan :)

Sending works fine now, but incoming messages still don't come immediately. They come in a bunch on log on, and then the same messages continue to come in a bunch every several minutes.

dartraiden, I'd been receiving duplicate messages even after 20 feb update, but now it's ok, strange. Why are they not instant like outcoming messages anyway?

dartraiden, the delay is not one minute. It's like 15 minutes. And the messages come in reverse order.
