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? https://github.com/jnunemaker/twitter
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.
