Twinger

Description

Tiny app to mimic (mock?) finger on Twitter.

Remember when finger was a thing? Probably not. But once upon a time you could type:

bash$ finger bson@gnu.ai.mit.edu

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
[stephenfry@twitter.com]
User        Real Name   What
stephenfry  Stephen Fry British Actor, Writer, Lord of Dance, Prince of Swimwear & Blogger

Requirements

  • json
