Twidge – “Twidge is a full command-line client. It is designed to be useful when you’re sitting at a shell prompt. It’s also designed to work well with the Unix/POSIX/Linux shell scripting environment. It produces output in well-formed and easily-parsed ways, and has various features for working with piped data.” Oh, OK.


Twithey 1.0

July 24, 2008

Twithey 1.0 – looks like a bit of a geek-fest, and I really have no clue about this one, so I shall simply quote:

“Twithey is a lame little idea that popped into my head one day that I couldn’t let go of – a Twitter client that runs on the command line in a manner not unlike the famous Redbrick/Netsoc/everywhere-else command hey, with the ability to check your timeline using something like “heylog” (as far as I know this command only works in the TCD Netsoc hey, but it does what it sounds like), send regular tweets with a single command and direct messages with a similar command. The software is “very beta” at the moment and the code desperately needs cleaning and optimisation, but if I ever bother myself or if I get feedback I’ll fix things up a bit.”

Ubuntu: Posting to Twitter from the Terminal Window – mini tutorial from Digital Streets. Install cURL (a command line tool) and then Tweet from the Terminal like so:

curl -u yourusername:yourpassword -d status=”Your Message Here”

A tad long winded, but arrow keys make it a little quicker.
