Surf Anonymous Free - Your Ultimate Free Online Protection A Utility That Makes You Master of the Twitterverse You can do a lot more with Twitter than the official Web, mobile and desktop clients allow. To do it, though, you'll need to access Twitter's API — or use a tool that digs deeper into the API than the usual clients. If you're comfortable with a command line interface, or willing to learn how to use one, t gives you simple, fine-grained control over your Twitter stream. The one-letter Ruby gem, t, is written by Erik Michaels-Ober. After you've installed the t gem, you'll need to authorize it. Using t To see all of the commands available via t, just run t help. For example, you can use t to get all of the followers for an account by running t followers username. Many of the commands are mundane operations that you can do with any Twitter client. If you're a command-line diehard, then you might prefer using t for those operations. The most interesting thing about t is that it works well with other *nix commands. You may bump up against arbitrary limits when adding people to lists and such.
