Pull tweets into application

Anyone know the best way to incorporate tweets into an application
automatically? Meaning search the Twitter API and pull in matches
into my app w/o having to go to Twitter and do the manual
authorization.

Have you checked out the Twitter gem?

To pull your tweets, you probably could just the Twitter::Search class.

If you want to be able to make tweets from your app, then you'll have to
go to dev.twitter.com to register you app with Twitter. Then you can
take the various tokens and secrets and configure the Twitter gem with
them.

Cool - I'll try it out. I was wondering if whether I would have to do
any authentication just to pull in tweets. Thanks for the lead.
