This one is for the command line junkies out there. By using cURL ( a client for getting files from servers), you can easily post your tweets to Twitter from the terminal window.
To install cURL:
- Open a terminal window.
- Execute the following Terminal command:
sudo apt-get install curl
- Input the administrative password.
With cURL installed, you can post to Twitter from the terminal window by using the following syntax:
|curl -u yourusername:yourpassword -d status=”Your Message Here” http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml|
You will receive a response containing the XML coding for your post which acts as a confirmation that your post was submitted.
