The default format is "[%U] %M", with the available formatting patterns defined as:
%U - username or screen name %M - status message %T - timestamp (e.g. Sat Oct 13 19:29:17 +0000 2012) %D - datetime (e.g. 13/10/2012 19:29:17) %d - date only (e.g. 13/10/2012) %t - time only (e.g. 19:29:17) %N - network
