This script posts a message to Twitter.
-h --help : print this help
--consumer-key : the twitter consumer key
--consumer-secret : the twitter consumer secret
--access-key : the twitter access token key
--access-secret : the twitter access token secret
--encoding : the character set encoding used in input strings, e.g. "utf-8". [optional]
If either of the command line flags are not present, the environment
variables TWEETUSERNAME and TWEETPASSWORD will then be checked for your
consumer_key or consumer_secret, respectively.
If neither the command line flags nor the environment variables are
present, the .tweetrc file, if it exists, can be used to set the
default consumer_key and consumer_secret. The file should contain the
following three lines, replacing *consumer_key* with your consumer key, and
*consumer_secret* with your consumer secret:
A skeletal .tweetrc file:
consumer_key: *consumer_key*
consumer_secret: *consumer_password*
access_key: *access_key*
access_secret: *access_password*
