App::Tweet - tweet on twitter from the command line
App::Tweet->run('tell this to twitter');
App::Tweet is a simple wrapper around Net::Twitter that allows for you to easily send messages (tweets) to twitter.com as a specific user. You should use the 'tweet' command to interface with this module.
The first time you run the application it will prompt you for a user name and password. This information is stored in a configuration file in your system's application data store. The password is stored in a somewhat encrypted state, but the cipher key for the encryption is stored right beside the configuration file, so it's not super-security. The permissions on the file are set to read/write only by the file owner, but that is only relevant on some systems.
If you ever need to reset or change the username or password perminantely, you can use the reconfigure method. If the change is just temporary, pass in the new username and password when running the application.
Runs the application and attempts to send a message to twitter using a configured username and password or the one provided as an argument to this command.
Forces re-prompting for the stored username and password.
