I wanted to be alerted when something changed in a Magento admin web application (new customer registration). I guess notifications by email are a little bit old fashioned and I thought a Twitter DM notification would be a more up to date solution.

The PHP classes allow you to create Tweets or DM’s via an Ajax request as demonstrated here.

It uses a simple JavaScript function to make an ajax call containing the data for the tweet. Can be used for any type of notification, app warnings, customer messages, contact forms, etc. etc. etc.

Source code coming to GitHub soon.
