NAME

Net::Twitter - Perl interface to twitter.com

VERSION

This document describes Net::Twitter version 1.04

SYNOPSIS

   #!/usr/bin/perl

   use Net::Twitter;

   my $twit = Net::Twitter->new(username=>"myuser", password=>"mypass" );

   $result = $twit->update("My current Status");

   $twit->credentials("otheruser", "otherpass");

   $result = $twit->update("Status for otheruser");

DESCRIPTION

http://www.twitter.com provides a web 2.0 type of ubiquitous presence. This module allows you to set your status, as well as the statuses of your friends.

You can view the latest status of Net::Twitter on it's own twitter timeline at http://twitter.com/net_twitter

INTERFACE

Net::Twitter exports the following methods.

new(...)

You must supply a hash containing the configuration for the connection.

Valid configuration items are:

username

Username of your account at twitter.com. This is usually your email address. REQUIRED.

password

Password of your account at twitter.com. REQUIRED.

apiurl

OPTIONAL. The URL of the API for twitter.com. This defaults to http://twitter.com/statuses if not set.

apihost
apirealm

OPTIONAL: If you do point to a different URL, you will also need to set apihost and apirealm so that the internal LWP can authenticate.

apihost defaults to www.twitter.com:80.

apirealm defaults to Twitter API.

credentials($username, $password, $apihost, $apiurl)

Change the credentials for logging into twitter. This is helpful when managing multiple accounts.

apirealm and apihost are optional and will default to the standard twitter versions if omitted.

update($status)

Set your current status. This returns a hashref containing your most recent status. Returns undef if an error occurs.

friends()

This returns a hashref containing the most recent status of those you have marked as friends in twitter. Returns undef if an error occurs.

friends_timeline()

This returns a hashref containing the timeline of those you have marked as friends in twitter. Returns undef if an error occurs.

public_timeline()

This returns a hashref containing the public timeline of all twitter users. Returns undef if an error occurs.

followers()

This returns a hashref containing the timeline of those who follow your status in twitter.. Returns undef if an error occurs.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

Net::Twitter uses LWP internally. Any environment variables that LWP supports should be supported by Net::Twitter. I hope.

DEPENDENCIES

LWP::UserAgent
JSON::Any

Starting with version 1.04, Net::Twitter requires JSON::Any instead of a specific JSON handler module. Net::Twitter currently accepts JSON::Any's default order for loading handlers.

INCOMPATIBILITIES

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

No bugs have been reported.

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-net-twitter@rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org.

The framework of this module is shamelessly stolen from Net::AIML. Big ups to Chris "perigrin" Prather for that.
