UPDATE - MAY 2013
Unfortunately this project is no longer available. In May 2013 Twitter discontinued its v1.0 API which this project is based on. Using the new v1.1 API would need a complete rewrite of the Twitter API interface and unfortunately I don’t
have the time to do so. Therefore the application does not work in its current state.
You can still download the source code to study some techniques and, of course,
to update it to the new v1.1 Twitter API. If you do that,
please contribute it back and I’ll update the project and assign you as a main contributor. Thanks in advance and sorry for the inconvenience.
