Is there away that you can make Cumulus MX like weather display where everytime it posts to twitter it posts the current conditions as well as your webcam image?

You would need to have Cumulus process a file with web tags, and then use an external utility to post the contents of the file along with the image.

I use a mixture of webtags / CumulusMX and then use twidge for forecasting to post to Twitter. I dont think however it does Images.
