(twyt ang bti, apologies for the vague FUD, but I just couldn’t get you to work. Feel free to comment)

I was trying to get basic twitter working from the command line. This was more difficult that expected, I went through four different approaches before I found one that worked.

bti – Didn’t work (reported no errors – even with verbose just did nothing)

twyt – Consistently said bad password

raw curl – Basic auth not supported

Finally I found ttytter, which wasn’t in the main ubuntu repository, but for which there was a ppa. After getting an oauth key this worked fine (with no man pages….grr). This can be reasonably scripter
