|Hello, Mr. Falken. You are a hard man to reach.|
Twitter does offer a RESTful interface for directly twitting stuff around, but handling the authentication takes a lot of work and time (that I don't have, actually). So, I tried something different. Something like this:

The key of the process is IFTTT, a nice tool that "[puts] the internet to work for you by creating tasks that fit this simple structure if-this-then-that". In this case, IF "a new message from the workstation is received" THEN "twit the message to @aresio", message that is then forwarded to my Android terminal automatically. IFTTT does a 15' polling, so it's not a real-time thing, but pretty close.
Almost anything was already done, I just glued the pieces together by developing all the stuff on the web server: a simple RESTful interface exposed to the workstation and a plain RSS feed; matter of five minutes, and it works.
