Avoid coming up with a filename/title for new content files

Is there a way to avoid setting a filename (and in turn, a title) when using hugo new? I want to create a content type like a tweet, but don’t want to have to give each a title. I would rather just use a hash of the timestamp like Twitter does: https://twitter.com/spf13/status/755388516939468801

You could just create an alias or a script that does something like

hugo new mini/`date +"My blog %F %T" | md5`.md

Assuming that mini is the section you want the post to belong to. The substring "My blog " is just for flavour :slightly_smiling:

Thanks! That is way easier than what I was trying to do and works just as well.
