ColdFusion Builder comes to Linux

Real quick... this morning Matt Gifford blogged "ColdFusion Builder Linux Support", observing:

Many developers have been asking for ColdFusion Builder support for Linux for a long time, [...]

Initially reported in 2011, “ColdFusion Builder 2 Won’t Run Under Linux” (bug #2832512 ) has been commented on by a fair number of people (24 is a fair number in my book), but sadly the ticket has been closed and the reason marked as “not enough time”. Say what?

Sending "Tweets" via ColdFusion (via Twitter4J)

I'm writing an application than needs to send Twitter status updates.  This is an augmentation of the ColdFusion Bugs RSS feeds I have (in the box on the right); I'm gonna send tweets out when a new bug is raised as well.  Or that's the idea.

To do this, I need to work out how to send Twitter status updates (which sounds much less daft than "tweets") from ColdFusion somehow.

This is probably well-trod ground, but the CF-based resources I initially found are all out of date, so I thought I'd post the results of my investigations here in case they're helpful to anyone.
