Ubuntu – Using the terminal to update Twitter

command linetwitter

Trying to update twitter using the terminal. curl and wget codes I have found are not working, it looks like Twitter has updated the way it authenticates, is it still possible to update Twitter from command line?

This code is just saying Basic authentication is not supported.
curl -u user -d status="Tweeting from the shell" http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml

It is definitely worth to take a look at Rainbow Stream - a fancy Twitter client on Terminal wrote by Python :)
