This one is for the command line junkies out there. By using cURL ( a client for getting files from servers), you can easily post your tweets to Twitter from the terminal window.

To install cURL:

  1. Open a terminal window.

  2. Execute the following Terminal command:
    sudo apt-get install curl
  3. Input the administrative password.

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

curl -u yourusername:yourpassword -d status=”Your Message Here” http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml

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