Just recently know. Using curl you can update your twitter status via terminal. First, get curl off course, install it by Synaptic or terminal “sudo apt-get install curl”. Then try this code:
$ curl -u username:password -d status="Tweeting from the shell. Nuts." http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml
Or if you’re worried of people standing behind you, trying to peek on your password try this code:
$ curl -u username -d status="Tweeting from the shell. Nuts." http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml
I prefer use the second one of course😆. It doesn’t require password (will asks for it instead).
PS: I’m using Ubuntu if you’re wondering what kind of “Terminal” I used in my post.😀
PPS: Hey, this is my first blogpost in English, sorry for any misspelled words, or other inconvenience in my post🙂
