            Release Notes: The default behavior when you just call tweet is now to include your public timeline and current mentions of your username. This means that you will see replies, retweets, etc. that mention you in them mixed in with your normal public timeline. You can also add terms that you always want to show in your tweet default view as space-separated values in the TWITTER_AUTO_FOLLOW variable in .tweetrc.
