Tweet From the Command Line

Jul 31, 2008

I'm a command line junkie. I crave the command-line like addicts crave heroin. Okay, maybe a little bit less.

In an effort to spend more time on the command-line, and less time in my web browser, I created a little utility that allows me to tweet from the prompt. I call it tweet.

It's going to make me more productive. So, now I won't have to feel bad about twitter's victory. It will make you more productive too.

You use it like this:

$ tweet "I'm going to walk my dog."

You download it like this:

$ sudo gem install giraffesoft-tweet

You fork it from here.

See the README for the config file syntax.

That is all.
