A Simple .NET Twitter API Wrapper Using LINQ

Fantastic piece of software!

Sean's Stuff

In the world of software demos, doing something with Twitter has replaced Hello World as the most common target of a demo.  At the risk of polluting the world with yet another chunk of code that does something with Twitter–I’d like to play around a bit with Silverlight charting and Twitter seems a great context for demoing what is possible.

But before I can start creating a Silverlight demo, I need a basic Twitter API wrapper in .NET.  So here’s a starting point–a simple example that uses LINQ to get a list of people that you follow.  This is a good starting point for later demos.

Twitter provides a simple REST API that lets you do basically everything you’d want to do using simple HTTP GET, POST and DELETE requests.

You can learn everything you need to know about the Twitter API at the Twitter API Wiki.
