Ubuntu: Posting to Twitter from the Terminal Window

April 11, 2008

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” http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml

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