twitter on your terminal

Good afternoon guys, this is another “no new invention” post, just to share something i think will be important for others.
It was a result of the search for a better way to use twitter on a very slow connexion, i found TTYTTER (a linux package that does the job).

Just go to your package manager, search for TTYTTER and install, or you can do it through the console as :

sudo apt-get install ttytter

After that, open your terminal and launch (be typing “ttytter”).

Just follow instructions : basically you’ll be given a link to open in your web browser, the browser page will generate a PIN number which you’ll be asked for in your terminal.

This PIN number is just an authorization for the client to access your twitter account.

After this step, you’ll be asked your login credentials and that’s the end. Your tweets will be flowing right in front of you.

To tweet, you type your text and press “ENTER”…….. Intuitively, you’ll get to understand the App.
Here’s my console window with tweets below :
