Twidge – a tool for interacting with microblogging sites such as Twitter and StatusNet.
Twidge is a full command-line client. It is designed to be useful when you’re sitting at a shell prompt. It’s also designed to work well with the Unix/POSIX/Linux shell scripting environment.

It can be used to:
– Simply update your own status and following your friends
– Setting status based on system events
– Receiving status updates via email, and sending your friends and your replies to email
– Scheduling status updates for the future
– The sky’s the limit!
