  • An improvement of the original (at: http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/view/2872/update-twitter-via-curl) in the sense that you see a "from cURL" under your status message instead of just a "from API" ;-) Twitter automatically links it to the cURL home page. Show Sample Output

    curl -u twitter-username -d status="Hello World, Twitter!" -d source="cURL" http://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml
