Build a slick Twitter feed on your site

A few months ago I published an article describing how to output a Twitter stream on a page using PHP, and later followed up with two more to polish the display. The article content and code examples have since been tweaked based on feedback and my own debugging. If you haven’t already had a look, or missed a portion, here’s the full series:

    * Display Twitter updates on your website * Calculate dates and times in different timezones (translate Twitter timestamps) * Parse URL’s in text, create links (automatically link URL's in stream) * Download and store your Twitter posts in a database
If you have any comments or questions, be sure to post them under the proper article.
