Chitter.im is a Gtalk bot that enables easy usage of Twitter. I just do not have the habit of visiting Twitter's website.
Both Chitter.im bot and it's web interface is hosted at Google App Engine for Java (GAEj).
The bot itself uses XMPP service of GAEj to communicate with clients. Since, Twitter's Stream API cannot be handled at GAEj, we're polling timeline changes as well, using Task Queues and Cronjob services of GAEj. We're also using some other popular services like Bit.ly URL shortening APIs as well.
The web interface is a Java Servlet/JSP module to gather account information. It uses OAuth for Twitter, and Users service of GAEj for Gtalk authentication. The persistence is achieved using Java Data Objects (JDO) Query Language (JDOQL).
