Height of geekiness - Post to twitter from your terminal using wget[Linux Gyan]

twitter-logoFor all the (linux) micro blogging junkies out there, you can now post to Twitter using your terminal.

Just fire up your terminal and:

wget --delete-after --user=username --password=mysecretpassword --post-data status='your message here. and dont remove the quotes' http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml

Dont forget to edit your user name, password and message body.
Happy (geeky) twittering.
