This is a great way to stealth tweet at work, especially when combined with a 2nd monitor and a 4-way terminal split :)

If you are that worried about being caught Tweeting at work wouldn't you be more concerned about generating a public tweet with a timestamp showing you posted it at work?

Most people consume Twitter a lot more than they produce tweets.

I almost never tweet from work, but I have the OS X app open most of the time (without any need to hide it where I work).

Ah sorry "tweeting" is an action to post a tweet. I thought that's what they meant.

And it works better than lynx.

I'm using https://github.com/sferik/t is this better

I think t is rather like a Linux command, while Rainbow Stream is an app and focus on display and custom hashtag following with streaming API.

Fantastic, I've been looking for a way to stop using Janetter for some time, and my love of TUIs means this is right up my alley!

I've had almost exactly this on my back-burner of "things that would be nice to write if nobody else does". Thanks!

I think I'll actually give Twitter a shot now. This looks much more convenient than the web interface.

Feature request! Instead of a link to photos, there could be ASCII converted images, like with http://picascii.com/

You mean when we type a "show image x" ? Would be an awesome feature :) If I can I will try to do the ascii magic directly on terminal first :)

Sounds good! This is really neat and elegant by the way :)

thank you! I've been looking for something like this for a while now, been trying to mess with the API myself but a tad over my head.

wow, that is awesome
