mod_tweet_data

mod_tweet_data

This module adds Open Graph Protocol metadata to Twitter.com tweet URLs sent inside a MUC.

It’s similar to mod_ogp but is adapted specifically to Twitter.com, which doesn’t support the Open Graph Protocol.

When a user sends a tweet URL in a MUC (where the message has its id equal to its origin-id), this module calls that URL to get the tweet data. If it finds any, it sends a XEP-0422 fastening applied to the original message that looks as follows (note, I haven’t used real data here):

    <message xmlns="jabber:client" to="user@chat.example.org/resource" from="chatroom@muc.example.org" type="groupchat">
