Adding a Jabber account to BitlBee
If you have a Jabber (XMPP) account, you can go ahead and add that to Bitlbee. The syn-
tax is similar to the prior example:
account add jabber firstname.lastname@example.org password
The root user should return with something like:
Account successfully added with tag jabber
Turn the account on with:
acc jabber on
You should now see two accounts when you type account list . Lastly, save your data!
You can add your Twitter account as well and tweet from IRC. However, you'll need
BitlBee version 3.2.1 or greater; otherwise, you will receive SSL errors when trying to con-
nect to twitter.

at the member.fsf.org server. Similarly, fellows of the Free Software Foundation Europe
also have XMPP privileges. For more information, visit the respective FSF sites at ht-
