Text-mode twitter application

Default featured post

As you know Twitter is a type of social network, micro blogging and it is very famous. Since mostly I spend my time in text-mode and I also want to tweet something without switching to GUI, I found a great application for Twitter. The name of application is ttytter and by default is available on Ubuntu repository. Therefore you can install it easily with the following command,

$ sudo apt-get install ttytter

Two useful commands which are used in this application respectively are /refresh and /exit.

/refresh is used to refresh your Twitter page to see new tweets and obviously /exit is utilized to exit the application.

The reason that / is used before command is to distinguish between tweet and command. If you type for example refresh without / is assumes that it is tweet and the application tweets refresh word.

More information can be found in ttytter man page.

Enjoy tweeting in Linux console.
