tw2buzz is a simple python script to extract tweets out of a tweet stream with a #bz tag and post them to Google Buzz.

The current version is a simple quick hack which is functional. Haven't invested much time into it from a code structure or quality perspective. Will do so over the coming week.

To get it running you need to do the following :

a. Set the three parameters in conf.ini - the twitter handle, gmail address and gmail password - change all the values within and including the '<' '>' braces to the appropriate values.
b. When you run the script it expects conf.ini to be in the python path. The script also creates another file transient.ini in the current working directory. Thus it requires to have the write permissions to do so. 
c. Schedule the script at desired interval using cron or anything else appropriate.

There is a likelihood this script will get refactored / cleaned / tested over the next week or two.
