What Others Think

a) Windows is not unix. b) What exactly are we supposed to glean from this? The fact that basic commandline features work on windows? What exactly is good or informative about this? c) Good for you to use .bat files. Really. Why is that relevant to us?

I voted it down, not because it's a Windows command, but because the contents of test.bat aren't known, and the description mentions using the Twitter API, but doesn't give a valid example of the usage.
