Use Twitter to control PC

With the increasing popularity of Twitter, it is finding many uses. Here is a complete new use of Twitter through which you can remotely control your PC. All you need for controlling your PC via Twitter is TweetMyPC.

Installation and Usage
  • Download the setup file and Install.
  • Go to and create a new Twitter account for your PC (This is optional as TweetMyPC only responds for updates). This account will be used by TweetMyPC to monitor for new tweets
  • Start TweetMyPC and then fill in the login details. Wait for some time for the application to verify your login details.

 Here are some of its main features:
# You can shutdown, lock, hibernate, or put the machine in standby.

# Get a screenshot of your computer screen, and have it posted to Twitpic so that it can easily be viewed.

# View and kill running processes.

# Download files so that they are there when you get home.

# Get a list of files inside of a directory on the computer.

# Have it email you a document on your computer by providing the path. This only works with Gmail at the moment.

TweetMyPC is a must have utility for any geek who wants to put their computer to work from the comfort of their phone.
