Twitter

I'm starting to understand the hype about twitter. They were smart opening up their API to a simple bash script. See below for a sample that allows you to easily tweet from the command line.


#!/bin/bash
TEXT=$*
curl -s -u username:password -d status="${TEXT}" https://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml >/dev/null

I guess the value comes from finding interesting people to follow. Suggestions?
