Two Unusual and Good Twitter Clients For Linux

"Twidge lets you send and receive Twitter or Identi.ca updates from the command-line. Although micro-blogging from the command-line may not appeal to you, the command-line makes it easy to fiddle with Twitter, and Twidge works well in shell scripts. For example, you can automate sending updates or filter out unwanted updates from your friends.

"Debian and Ubuntu Jaunty users can install the "twidge" package. Other users should download the static executable from Twidge's download page, run bunzip2 on the file, copy it to /usr/local/bin/twidge, and make it executable with the following command: chmod +x /usr/local/bin/twidge. You also need to install your distribution's cURL package."
