A Twitter API 1.1 compliant class that provides an array of a users timeline from Twitter for use in a nice cached-based way.

Uses Abraham Williams's Twitter OAuth class

Version 2.0

The class has now been updated to support multiple username/screennames, as well as full support for any parameters you want to pass through to the statuses/user_timeline API. (https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/get/statuses/user_timeline).

Basic Usage

Basic usage of the class would be similar to


$config = array(
  'directory' => '', //The path used to store the .tweetcache cache file.
  'key' => '<App Key from Twitter>',
  'secret' => '<App Secret from Twitter>',
  'token' => '<Token from Twitter>',
  'token_secret' => '<Token Secret from Twitter>',
  'screenname' => '<Twitter Screename>', //This is now deprecated and you shouldn't define this - but it's here for backwards compatibility
  'cache_expire' => 3600 //The duration of the cache  

$twitter = new StormTwitter($config);

// getTweets is the only public method. For legacy reasons, it takes between 0 and 3 parameters.
// getTweets(number_of_tweets, twitter_screenname, custom_parameters_to_go_twitter);

$tweets = $twitter->getTweets(1,'lgladdy');

echo "<pre>";
echo "</pre>";

$tweets = $twitter->getTweets(1,'stormuk', array('include_rts'=>true,'exclude_replies'=>true));

echo "<pre>";
echo "</pre>";
