Welcome to Twidge

Welcome to Twidge. Twidge is 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 produces output in well-formed and easily-parsed ways, and has various features for working with piped data.

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!

This software was written by John Goerzen. If you like it, you can send a few dollars my way via my tip jar, though that is certainly optional and doesn’t buy you anything.

Contributing to twidge

You can always download the source from the Downloads page and attach diffs. But it’s far better, both for you and for me, if you use Git.

See for information. Also check out the Github project page for Twidge
