twat – A cli for posting to twitter

I released today the first alpha of my CLI twitter application, twat.

If you use rubygems you can install it with `gem install twat`, else you can clone it from my github repo at Twat.

Configuration is reasonably simple,

Do a

twat -a [twitter username|nickname]

Then follow the instructions, then you can tweet with

twat -n [username|nickname] 

but bear in mind that you’ll need to escape any metacharacters that your shell tries to tweak.

I’m not convinced that the OAuth implementation is secure, but while they explicitly say not to do what I’ve done, I also don’t see an alternative. Feedback greatly appreciated though.

I enjoy exploring interesting concepts in weird languages. I also like hacking on all of the things.
