How can I import my Hotmail friends over to Twitter? The old importer doesn't seem to work.

Twitter have removed this functionality but a workaround is available here;


Twitter allows you to import gmail contacts.

Gmail allows you to import MSN contacts.

Hence, you can indirectly import MSN contacts in twitter by importing them first on your gmail account.

Hope this helps.

  • Nice hack :))))
