commandlinefu.com is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again.
Delete that bloated snippets file you've been using and share your personal repository with the world. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.
You can sign-in using OpenID credentials, or register a traditional username and password.
First-time OpenID users will be automatically assigned a username which can be changed after signing in.
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.
Use your favourite RSS aggregator to stay in touch with the latest commands. There are feeds mirroring the 3 Twitter streams as well as for virtually every other subset (users, tags, functions,…):

Doesn't require password (asks for it instead)
Found it on snipt, pok3, is it yours?
I put my user = m33600, the password and the status was my robot message:
Settima robot message: ALARM ZONE 3 (sent via command line).
Now bots may have their identity on twitter...
Type the command in the terminal and press enter to create the tweet() function. Then run as follows:
tweet MyTwitterAccount "My message goes here"
It will prompt you for password. Make sure that you use escape "\" character in message for showing varialbles or markup.
