I think no

I saw the number but sometimes I found nice plugins for 6.5 or 6.9 and so on and I tested it with NB > 6, for my example NB 8.0.1 and most of them or maybe 90% works for me, sometimes with little bugs but I could install and use them. For this plugin I can't install it but I would really like to try it out. It would be nice maybe the version 1.1.1 is the only problem, after installing I can use it(?)

What do you think?

Take a very close look at this page. There is a very clear clue that will tell you whether this plugin is still alive. (Small hint -- take a look at the version number... it is... 6.5, isn't it?)

Problems while installing

Is this projeect still alive? I would like to install it, but when I try it I got this:

Some plugins require plugin to be installed.
The plugin is requested in version 1.1.1. The following plugin is affected:       Twitter4NB

It is for 6.5 only

It isn't created for your nightly dev version, it is for 6.5 only. Otherwise, I would need to test it for every dev version? That would be crazy.

Nice! Tweet while you code

Thanks, I'm using it right now, and it works great!
I think I'll use it to ask questions ("how to use the Blahblah API?!?") and wait to get answers from other twitterers, muhahaha. :-P
PS: When I saw "twitter integration", for a moment I expected the plugin to generate tweets... :-) As in, everytime I complete a certain action, it will paste a line of text in the field, and I then decide whether I want to tweet this line or not. For example, when I start a new project, it may propose "I started a new NetBeans project!", or when I run unit tests it could propose "All tests on my project blah have passed, yay!" etc
Of course that would only be fun for rare actions, you wouldn't want to tweet, like, every EJB individually. I hope. ;-)
