Noooo, not another Twitter client! Yes, another Twitter client. The difference here is that you're dealing with a multi-functional, fully 100% text, Perl command line client. * In interactive mode, it is a fully interactive client with asynchronous background updates and commands. Use it over telnet, ssh or even a dummy terminal. Supports ANSI colour, UTF-8, hashtags and Twitter Search! * Works within your favourite environment: modify prompt and input methods for many popular window and session managers, or use a compatible readline library. Or don't: basic editing and screen management features built-in. * From the command line, use it to update your Twitter in shell scripts, from cron, and so on. * Notification support with Growl and libnotify (and extendable to others via the API). * Security: Supports Twitter OAuth and HTTP Basic Authentication, and SSL where supported by your user agent. * Supports Twitter-alike APIs such as StatusNet and * Supports standard timelines and automatically fetches direct messages, and optionally replies/mentions, and runs queries against the Search API and incorporates them into your timeline as well. * Write and use your own custom extensions! * Run detached in -daemon mode, and make your own Twitter bot!

    2015-07-06 - - build for openSUSE version 2.1.0: - Full compliance with Twitter API 1.1, including TOS limitations and rate limits. - Commands that accept menu codes can now also accept tweet or DM IDs, perfect for all you command-line jockeys. - New /replyall command (thanks @FunnelFiasco). - New /del command. - User filtering (with new -filter* options). - Better description of the full range of streaming events (thanks @RealIvanSanchez). - /push now works with non-Boolean options, simply pushing them to the stack (it still sets Booleans to true when pushed). - Geolocation now looks at and processes place ID, country code, name and place type, and tweets with a place ID will also be considered to have geolocation information (thanks @RealIvanSanchez).
