Yes you can add an url in the twitter.txt there is a limitid space offcourse use a short-url like bit.ly/abd01 put it in the twitter.txt in plain text with http://bit.ly/abd01 (note the url is an example) you have to make a redirect to you own url , I use goo.gl

Ok thank you for the reply, however i am not using Twitter.txt but instead using the auto update from Cumulus itself and i can find nowhere a place to edit Cumulus.ini for the updates.


Thanks

Eddie

You can ad a twitter.txt in the same folder as cumulus.exe and enable it in the internet setting of Cumulus where you've the fill out your twittername and password

You don't need to enable the use of twitter.txt, Cumulus just looks for it anyway. The equivalent of the default tweet is:

Code:
Wind <#wspeed> <#windunit> <#wdir>. Barometer <#press> <#pressunit>, <#presstrend>. Temperature <#temp> <#tempunit>. Rain today <#rfall> <#rainunit>. Humidity <#hum>%

Thank you Steve and everybody . I will just add my URL at the end of the tweets and see what happens. And then create a twitter.txt file.
