tw

tw is a tiny node script that I often use to avoid switching to a browser when a Twitter status link is mentioned. It was written a long time ago, is ugly, but does the job.

What does it do?

$ tw -h
Usage: tw <tweet url | tweet id>
 -h                          show help
 -u <nick>                   user's tweets
 -s <search term>            search tweets
 -i <status id | status url> show status

Really, that's it.
