This is a smaller story broken out from #562.

This issue is just to make /statuses/friends.json work like the twitter API. This route doesn't currently exist at all, but there is a nice update json decorator for you to use.

Ignore the issue of client authentication for the moment; just make this work as a normally authenticated user in the browser for now (see #564 about authentication)


Description: Returns a user's friends, each with current status inline. They are ordered by the order in which the user followed them, most recently followed first, 100 at a time. (Please note that the result set isn't guaranteed to be 100 every time as suspended users will be filtered out.)

Definitely interpret anything in the twitter docs so that it makes sense for rstat.us, and definitely ask if you have any questions!

Okay, so andres-fc noticed that the twitter docs for this are now gone. Matching the twitter api exactly isn't really the point though, the real goal is to be able to work with a client that lets you change the endpoint.

One that I know of for android is twidere which uses twitter4j. If someone wants to dig through these or other client libraries to see if they actually use this API endpoint, that would be awesome :)

Definitely don't bother working on this one until we confirm if it's supported/needed or not though...
