Stay in the loop…

Follow the Tweets.

Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.

PlayTweets from the command line

This will play the audio goodness posted up on PlayTweets via twitter right form the ever loving cmdline. You do not even need a twitter account. I hashed this out in a bit of a hurray as the kids need to get to sleep....I will be adding a loop based feature that will play new items as they come in...after what your are listening to is over.

Heck just take out the head limit and you get yourself a nice playlist full of stuff and it bums a few more chars out of the code. Ok now I am off to bed

vlc $(curl -s <a href="http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/18855500.rss|grep" rel="nofollow">http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/18855500.rss|grep</a> play|sed -ne '/<title>/s/^.*\(http.*\)<\/title/\1/gp'|awk '{print $1}')

OK just forget about the botched notes, I folded the thoughts into the command itself.
