Twitter Statusupdate via CLI (Shell)

August 13th, 2009 by

This was an interesting Idea, and i have found it on Tips4Linux. Based on: http://tips4linux.com/update-your-twitter-status-from-the-linux-command-line/

T4L: You can easily update your Twitter status from the CLI by using this one simple command:
curl -u user:password -d status=”Your status message” http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml
where user is your username and password is your Twitter password entered in plaintext. Replace the text Your status message with anything you wish.

Marcus and me have been busy improving the USB experience. So here is how to use it:

download the live cd of your choice from http://download.opensuse.org/factory/iso/ and make sure you grab build218 or later. And then do something like I did:

linux-vgqb:~ # ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/*usb*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 13. Aug 10:04 /dev/disk/by-id/usb-Kingston_DataTraveler_II+_5B751D8C1994-0:0 -> ../../sdb

So I use /dev/sdb in my commands to shorten it, normally I would use /dev/disk/by-id/.. directly to avoid overwriting my hard disk image.
