    Is this possible to do in tomato? :confused:

    # Create an account on twitter.
    # Create a Basic authentication string with
    echo -n "$username:$password" | base64
    Use the following shell script, substituting $base64string with the string obtained in previous step:
    CONTENT_LENGTH=`echo -n $TWEET | wc -c`
    POST /statuses/update.xml HTTP/1.1
    Host: twitter.com
    User-Agent: OpenWRT Twitter
    Accept: application/json, text/javascript, */*
    Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5
    Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8
    Content-Length: $CONTENT_LENGTH
    Authorization: Basic $base64string
    echo "$MESSAGE" | telnet twitter.com 80 > /dev/null 2>/dev/null
    # Save it as /usr/bin/tweet and start using it right away.
    # Set up some cron job, make it log something and... follow your router :)

    Busybox's telnet can't accept input from a pipe, so replace telnet with nc, and you'd be good to go. That, and the executable will have to be on jffs2, cifs, or /tmp rather than /usr/bin.
