TweetMyPC is yet another web based service that uses the Twitter platform. This time to literally control your PC! That is, you tweet, and your PC does!

Still confused? Lets put it this way: You’re realize that you are late for work and rush to your car meanwhile your brother abroad is downloading your vacation pictures from your PC that’s acting like a private webserver. Once he’s done he tweets you and you receive his message, in between red lights you tweet to your specific TweetMyPC account with the word “Shutdown” and lo and behold! As you swerve your way into your work place you PC is being shut down!

I mean can you imagine the scope for something like this? With wireless internet becoming widely available each passing day. I don’t think it’ll be long before hobbyists I’ll wire small factor PC’s to their car and the be able to tweet command like “stream playlist from home PC”

TweetMyPc does much more than the `shutdown’ example I gave below are a more detailed list of commands:

Replies : TweetMyPC will reply to you after a command is executed. Replies will be in the form of Tweets.
Lock : This command locks your Windows pc.
Physical memory : As the name says, this command will let you know the Physical Memory of your pc.
Virtual memory : Want to know the virtual memory of your pc? Just tweet virtual memory.
Os : This is one of the command which does not have much value. Tweeting os will make TweetMyPC to tweet about your OS version.
Ip : Know your pc’s ip from anywhere in the world with this command
Standby : Don’t want to shutdown? then make you pc go to standby mode with this command.
hibernate : hibernate your pc with a tweet.
Screenshot : Want to know what is happening in your pc when you are not around? Just tweet screenshot and TweetMyPC will take a screenshot of your desktop and post it to Twitpic.
Getprocesslist : This is one of the very useful command. On receiving this command TweetMyPC will generate a list of running programs, along with the process ID, and email it to a predefined email address.
Kill <process id> : This is used along with the above command. Once you recive the process list you can close a program using the kill command.
Download <url> : Want to download an interesting video but you are on the move? don’t worry just tweet download followed by the download url and TweetMyPC will download it for you and it will be ready when you return back. Note: Twitter automatically converts long urls into short one using bit.ly. TweetMyPC can download files only if the url is in the short form. Please use bit.ly to shorten your url before posting.
Getfile <filepath> : Missed an important document and you are traveling some where? No problem. Just tweet get followed by the file path and TweetMyPC will email the file as attachment to a predefined email. Don’t know the path? dont worry. Just checkout the next command.
Getfilelist <drive> : This command will make TweetMyPC to send you the list of files and folders in a drive. You can use this command to email you a file once you know the complete path of the file.
Custom Command : This is the most interesting feature of TweetMyPC. Do you think the above command are not enough? then create your own custom command. You can choose a command and then chose a file to run. For example you can choose a command winamp and make TweetMyPC to run winamp by tweeting winamp.
