Twitter WordPress Plugin, Twitter API
Twitter is an online social networking and micro-blogging tool which basically allows users to post their facebook-like “status” on their twitter page using various devices such as your cell phone, pda, or computer. Their idea revolves around the “what are you doing” concept; letting people know what you’re up to.
Since Twitter’s launch and exponential growth of other social media networks and blogging tools such as Digg, Facebook, WordPress and Blogger, there have been further Twitter developments in the form of plugins and widgets based on the Twitter API to further the cause.
The Twitter API basically allows developers to play around with Twitter’s functions and use twitter’s xml based data on custom applications.
Using the Twitter API, web developers can integrate their latest twitter into Flash, PHP, JAVA, PERL, Python, .NET, Ruby (and more of course).
