Day by day twitter gets more popularity for its simplicity and usability. Using this site you can share your status to your network(http://www.twitter.com).
Sometime you may needed to show your status to your site or somewhere else. Like we are now adding twitter application on facebook. Recently i’ve developed a php script which parse your status from twitter, here i have the script. Also you can know your friends status also. just update/modify “parseTwitter.php”, “twitter.php” as needed. I’ve used CURL here, so your server must be CURL enbaled.
Note: I’ve developed a module for expressionengine by which you can store message on your EE site, to update your twitter status automatically with stored messages timely – here are the details https://kodegeek.wordpress.com/2009/09/03/twitter-module-for-expressionengine/
