Twitter direct messages to Prowl push notifications

I knocked together a tiny Ruby script that pushes Twitter direct messages to Prowl. It’s a bit messy, but it works.

As jerakeen notes, you’re not going to see this running as a neatly wrapped service for quite a while – it simply doesn’t scale. But if you or a trusted geeky friend can run this then it should suffice.

Incidentally, my house seems to be in a push notifications black spot. Is that normal? I have full 3G reception. It works fine in Shoreditch.
