bti – sends a tweet message to twitter.com.

bti provides an easy way to send tweet messages directly from the command line or a script. It reads the message on standard input and uses the account and password settings either from the command line options or from a config file to deliver the message.

Besides sending messages bti also allows one to see one’s friends’, a group’s or a specific user’s timeline, the public timeline, replies to messages, and direct messages.

Its primary focus is to allow you to log everything that you type into a bash shell, in a crazy, “this is what I’m doing right now!” type of way, letting the world follow along with you constant moving between directories and refreshing your email queue to see if there’s anything interesting going on.

The account and password can be stored in a configuration file in the users home directory in a file named .bti

The application is written by Greg Kroah-Hartman and Amir Mohammad Saied.
