Featherdust is a simple Twitter gem that grabs and parses data via the Twitter API. NOTE: This gem does not (and will not) support posting to twitter, adding/removing followers, etc. This is a data grabber only. If you want more interaction with Twitter, check out the Twitter gem (http://twitter.rubyforge.com) or Twitter4R (http://twitter4r.rubyforge.com). If you have questions (or suggestions), please feel free to shoot them off to mike [at] panpainter [dot] com and I'll be happy to help.
