I need to create a twitter like application in sharepoint , not using OOTB but custom development. I planned to have one web part containing textbox and button named tweet. On clicking the tweet button, the text in the textbox should get populated in the discussion list. How to handle the button click event , populating the text in the textbox to the discussion board list.
I am new to Sharepoint. Please advice

Hi Omari,

Thanks for your reply. What you have told is a twitter plug in for sharepoint site.
But I am trying to create a twitter like application on my own for my own users.
