PHP, JSON and the Twitter API: Timelines

As part of the prototyping for tweetfall I’ve been building various tools to interact with the Twitter API with PHP.

How long this demo will work for I’m not sure as the recent changes to the Twitter API usage will affect our game considerably so we’ll be re-designing it – more on that later.

Anyway, for now here’s a little Timeline browser I’ve written that uses the ‘1/statuses/user_timeline’ Twitter API method

You can change the twittername on the URL to view other timelines, or just branch of mine 😉
