Why a Command Line Twitter Client ?

There are some people which are programmers, software engineers and some network engineers and sometimes they might not have time or access to twitter web interface and they don’t use twitter clients. Some of them might enjoy tweeting from command line as they might have other work to perform on command prompt and even their boss cannot even suspect that tweeting can be done from command line.

Another reason is simple geeks like me who would rather stress on the geeky way of doing things – so i specially feel more excited to tweet on twitter from a command line rather than with some third party twitter clients.


Following are the common command syntax to tweet with twitter command line client.

twimmando -uri /statuses/public_timeline.xml

2. To post new messages to twitter using this free command line tool, type the command in the following systax 

   twimmando -uri /statuses/update.json -f status "Your Tweeting Message To Twitter" -post -u ID -p PASS
