I was wondering how to update my status automatically in twitter using PHP, & found some interesting articles on the internet. I found One all-in-one open-source php project which needed CURL support, but many servers can restrict that access to curl. So with a little help from here & the official Twitter API, I’ve just prepared a working script to Update your Status at twitter automatically 🙂 The best thing is, you don’t need to have CURL enabled! (it will then use fsockopen if CURL is disabled)
How to Use
Once downloaded, save the code in a file like twitter.php
Then use following simple function to automatically update your status:
require_once("twitter.php"); $username = "YOUR-TWITTER-USERNAME"; $password = "YOUR-TWITTER-PASSWORD"; $status = "My First status from the API!"; // encode the status $status = urlencode($status); // Tweet it! $twitter = tweet($username,$password,$status); // Now you can do additional fun with the data returned at $twitter variable. That's not necessary after all
