Tim here.  A while back I tried a smattering of CLI Twitter clients
and was pretty disappointed.  Rainbowstream was the least bad of
them, so that's where I'd start.

It required the ability to do an OAUTH credential thing, but I think
it can be completed using an external browser (such as one on a phone
or on a different computer) since all it needs to do is get
confirmation from Twitter that the login is legit.
