The Tempt of Twitter

So the thought of having a microblog has never really been appealing to me. In addition to this blog, the thought of having another blog full of one liners just didn't seem useful to me.

Thank you Zach Margolis for posting a page on his del.icio.us about using Twitter's API to update it from the command line. For some reason, just the thought of opening a terminal and posting to my blog is appealing to me... I hate you Zach Margolis.

curl -u yourusername:yourpassword -d status="Your Message Here" \
https://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml -k

Then set up an alias so you just need to type something like:
t "Your Message Here"

And you'd be all set.

  1. I had an inkling this was coming, since you saved that same link to your delicious, too. Happy Twittering!
