= addicted to twitter

... a sweet little diddy that helps you twitter your life away

== Install

sudo gem install twitter will work just fine. For command line use, you'll need a few other gems: sudo gem install main highline activerecord sqlite3-ruby

== Examples

	Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').update('watching veronica mars')
	
	# or you can use post
	Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').post('post works too')

	puts "Public Timeline", "=" * 50
	Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').timeline(:public).each do |s|
	  puts s.text, s.user.name
	  puts
	end

	puts '', "Friends Timeline", "=" * 50
	Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').timeline.each do |s|
	  puts s.text, s.user.name
	  puts
	end

	puts '', "Friends", "=" * 50
	Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').friends.each do |u|
	  puts u.name, u.status.text
	  puts
	end

	puts '', "Followers", "=" * 50
	Twitter::Base.new('your email', 'your password').followers.each do |u|
	  puts u.name, u.status.text
	  puts
	end
	
== Search Examples

	Twitter::Search.new('httparty').each { |r| puts r.inspect }
	Twitter::Search.new('httparty').from('jnunemaker').each { |r| puts r.inspect }
	Twitter::Search.new.from('jnunemaker').to('oaknd1').each { |r| puts r.inspect }
	

== Command Line Use

Note: If you want to use twitter from the command line be sure that sqlite3 and the sqlite3-ruby gem are installed. I removed the sqlite3-ruby gem as a dependency because you shouldn't need that to just use the API wrapper. Eventually I'll move the CLI interface into another gem.
	
	$ twitter

Will give you a list of all the commands. You can get the help for each command by running twitter [command] -h. 

The first thing you'll want to do is install the database so your account(s) can be stored. 

	$ twitter install
	
You can always uninstall twitter like this:

	$ twitter uninstall
	
Once the twitter database is installed and migrated, you can add accounts like this:

	$ twitter add
	Add New Account:
	Username: jnunemaker
	Password (won't be displayed): 
	Account added.

You can also list all the accounts you've added.

	$ twitter list
	Account List
	* jnunemaker
	  snitch_test

The * means denotes the account that will be used when posting, befriending, defriending, following, leaving or viewing a timeline.

To post using the account marked with the *, simply type the following:

	$ twitter post "releasing my new twitter gem"

That is about it. You can do pretty much anything that you can do with twitter from the command line interface.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
