== Description
Twitter4R provides an object based API to query or update your Twitter account via pure Ruby.  It hides the ugly HTTP/REST code from your code.

== External Dependencies
* Ruby 1.8 (tested with 1.8.6)
* RSpec gem 1.0.0+ (tested with 1.1.3)
* JSON gem 0.4.3+ (tested with versions: 1.1.1 and 1.1.2)
* jcode (for unicode support)

== Usage Examples
Twitter4R starting with version 0.1.1 and above is organized into seven parts:
* {Configuration API}[link:files/examples/configure_rb.html]
* {Friendship API}[link:files/examples/friendship_rb.html]
* {Messaging API}[link:files/examples/messaging_rb.html]
* {Model API}[link:files/examples/model_rb.html]
* {Status API}[link:files/examples/status_rb.html]
