See and post Twitter messages from Terminal
Authored by: VxJasonxV on Apr 12, '10 10:42:18AM

I would suggest users prevent their password going into their command line history file.

Leave off the :password part of curl.

e.g. curl -u username -d [...]

cURL will prompt your for the password, and it won't be saved or even displayed anywhere. It'll be run in the current context, and never again.
