Twitter in your REPL

Meant to destroy the productivity of Lisp programmers worldwide, cl-twit is a Common Lisp client for Twitter, with an emphasis on using it from the REPL.

Browse the source online at github, or get it using:

git clone git://

You can also visit the downloads page.

There's a manual too.

cl-twit is maintained by Chaitanya Gupta. Send him feedback at mail at, or ping him on Twitter @chaitanya_gupta.

Trivia: cl-twit came out within a week of two other twitter clients being released for CL. Both are named 'cl-twitter'. One is by Ian Eslick, and the other is by Chris Davies.
