Simplest post tweet from unix command line?


I’d like to make a simple Twitter Bot.
I started in on the site but realize that might be overkill…

I went through the steps of ttytter ( ) but get a *** server reports: "Could not authenticate you"
message, even after setting it up with an OAUTH Pin and what not.

Are there any other simple options? I’m a decent Perl hack (and Java/javascript, but I’m thinking Perl or Python or similar might be best for this)
