Twittering the command line way

As you might have noticed my previous post was browsing the command line. Now lets see how to twitter the command line way:-);-)
At first you need to install cURL.(a client for getting files from servers) to post to Twitter through the Terminal which can be installed using the following command:

pradeep@pradeep-laptop:sudo apt-get install curl

With cURL installed, you can post to Twitter from the terminal window by using the following syntax:

pradeep@pradeep-laptop:curl -u yourusername:yourpassword -d status="Your Message Here"

You will receive a response containing the XML coding for your post which acts as a confirmation that your post was submitted.

So have fun twittering the command line way:-)

Post in your reviews:-)
