I've been dealing with this myself. What I did was implement a new twitterrc
format -- basically a config file in your user directory (~/.twitterrc) or in
your /etc/ that has your own personal consumer and access token. I also store a
version inside in the keychain on Mac.
I forked a version of twurl and updated all own my scripts to recognize the rc
file and Mac keychain format and use it if it's detected. It makes it far less
complicated to use command line tools.
It would be nice to standardize this or something maybe.
