There is a command-line twitter client that can be used to send tweets to a certain account from terminal. Combining it with cron and other linux tools I have built a twitter-bot that sends proverbs periodically to twitter (https://twitter.com/l10n_sq). I will describe here how I did it.

In public computers (e.g. in schools, libraries, universities, etc.) it is useful to have a frozen guest account. This means that the content of the account is temporary and is erased immediately after logout or reboot.

It is also important for the safety of the users, because it ensures that no open accounts or passwords are left behind.
