Dorkitweet

You can use this to send tweets via the command line, with URLs optionally shortened by your CloudApp account.

Dorkitweet is pretty rough around the edges, but I thought someone may find it useful.

Alfred

I pretty much only use Dorkitweet as a way to tweet via Alfred.

Now, to send a tweet from my Mac, I just do this:

  1. press command-space
  2. type tweet blah blah blah blah blah
  3. press Enter

kickinrad, no?

FYI, here are my Alfred Extension settings to make it work:

CLI Usage

Send a tweet from the account "dorkitude":

./send_tweet.py dorkitude Hello there!  Learn more about wizards at http://dorkitude.com

Send a tweet and shorten the URLs:

./send_tweet.py --shorten_urls dorkitude The following URL will be shortened: http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/ex47.html

Do this to get started:

./setup.py
