YATC (yet another twitter client)

image My twitter followers have probably realize by now that I’ve been playing around with the Twitter API. I’ve been trying out the API and I created a command line tool to update my twitter status.
I tried lots of clients but it is still a pain in the a*s to go to a different application or web browser to update my status.
I have a command line window open all the time so now I’ll be easier to update my status. In case you want to give it a try you can download it from here. The use is real simple, just type twit <your status> and that’s it. If it is the first time you run it it’ll ask you for your twitter credentials.

Edit: as of today (Jan 28th, 2010) twit has integration. Just type your status with a url and twit will post the short version of it. Yes! I like playing with web APIs.
As always, this bits have the “works on my machine” warranty :)
