Status API Examples

 require('rubygems')
 gem('twitter4r', '0.2.0')
 require('twitter')

The following is only required if you want to use some configuration helper methods like Twitte4R::Client.from_config for sensitive/instance context.

 require 'twitter/console'
 config_file = File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__), '..', 'config', 'twitter.yml')

To override client connection configuration please refer to the configure.rb example code.

 twitter = Twitter::Client.from_config(config_file)

To post a new status we can do:

 status = twitter.status(:post, 'NOT buying overrated iPhone.')

To retrieve the status from it‘s unique integer status ID we can do the following:

 status = twitter.status(:get, status.id)

To delete a status message we can do:

 twitter.status(:delete, status)
