NAME
       tweet - Text-based client for Twitter.

SYNOPSIS
       tweet [options] message

DESCRIPTION
              tweet is a text-based client that allows you to post messages to
              Twitter.

OPTIONS AND DOCUMENTATION
       Options:
               -h --help : print this help
               --consumer-key : the twitter consumer key
               --consumer-secret : the twitter consumer secret
               --access-key : the twitter access token key
               --access-secret : the twitter access token secret
               --encoding : the character set encoding used in input strings,
              e.g. "utf-8". [optional]


       Documentation:

              If either of the command line flags are not present, the
              environment variables TWEETUSERNAME and TWEETPASSWORD will then
              be checked for your consumer_key or consumer_secret,
              respectively.

              If neither the command line flags nor the enviroment variables
              are present, the .tweetrc file, if it exists, can be used to set
              the default consumer_key and consumer_secret.  The file should
              contain the following three lines, replacing *consumer_key* with
              your consumer key, and *consumer_secret* with your consumer
              secret:

              A skeletal .tweetrc file:

               [Tweet]
               consumer_key: *consumer_key*
               consumer_secret: *consumer_password*
               access_key: *access_key*
               access_secret: *access_password*
