I had a need, in one of the projects I have been hacking on recently, for a way for an automated process to send messages to a twitter feed based on certain system events – log file changes, inotify updates, etc.
The various existing projects seemed to do much more than I needed and were not easily apt-getable, so I hacked a quick one together in PHP.
A simple toy, no mistake, but combined with a number of other simple tools turns out to be quite handy for automation, given how twitter (currently) glues many disparate services together and acts as an informal protocol between them.
So, being a good FOSS citizen, here you go. Perhaps it’ll save someone a couple of minutes!
