Tiny app to mimic (mock?) finger on Twitter.
finger was a thing? Probably not. But once upon a time you could type:
bash$ finger firstname.lastname@example.org
And get some neat results:
[apple-gunkies.gnu.ai.mit.edu] User Real Name What Idle TTY Host Console Location bson Jan Brittenson fgrep *p0 apple-gu (nutrimat.gnu.ai.)
Now you can do the same with Twitter:
$ twinger stephenfry [email@example.com] User Real Name What stephenfry Stephen Fry British Actor, Writer, Lord of Dance, Prince of Swimwear & Blogger
$ gem install twinger
