FUNCTIONS

params

Describes the required parameters for logging in (for Twitter, username and password).

add_friend <friend>

PREREQUISITES

This module uses Net::Twitter, so you'll need that (and JSON::Any). You'll also need Net::Social.

CAVEATS

The 'friends' API method only returns the last 100 users to have updated. In the event you're free and easy with friending users, there appears to be no way of finding out who all of them are, at least not from the API.
