    Description

    node-twitter is a node.js module for interacting with the Twitter API.

    Examples

    REST

    The Twitter REST API can be accessed using Twitter.RestClient. The following code example shows how to retrieve tweets from the authenticated user's timeline.

    var Twitter = require('node-twitter');
     
    var twitterRestClient = new Twitter.RestClient(
        'CONSUMER_KEY',
        'CONSUMER_SECRET',
        'TOKEN',
        'TOKEN_SECRET'
    );
     
    twitterRestClient.statusesHomeTimeline({}, function(error, result) {
        if (error)
        {
            console.log('Error: ' + (error.code ? error.code + ' ' + error.message : error.message));
        }
     
        if (result)
        {
            console.log(result);
        }
    });

    Search

    The Twitter Search API can be accessed using Twitter.SearchClient. The following code example shows how to search for tweets containing the keyword "node.js".

    var Twitter = require('node-twitter');
     
    var twitterSearchClient = new Twitter.SearchClient(
        'CONSUMER_KEY',
        'CONSUMER_SECRET',
        'TOKEN',
        'TOKEN_SECRET'
    );
     
    twitterSearchClient.search({'q': 'node.js'}, function(error, result) {
        if (error)
        {
            console.log('Error: ' + (error.code ? error.code + ' ' + error.message : error.message));
        }
     
        if (result)
        {
            console.log(result);
        }
    });

    Streaming

    The Twitter Streaming API can be accessed using Twitter.StreamClient. The following code example shows how to catch all tweets containing the keywords "baseball", "basketball", "football" or "hockey".

    var Twitter = require('node-twitter');
     
    var twitterStreamClient = new Twitter.StreamClient(
        'CONSUMER_KEY',
        'CONSUMER_SECRET',
        'TOKEN',
        'TOKEN_SECRET'
    );
     
    twitterStreamClient.on('close', function() {
        console.log('Connection closed.');
    });
    twitterStreamClient.on('end', function() {
        console.log('End of Line.');
    });
    twitterStreamClient.on('error', function(error) {
        console.log('Error: ' + (error.code ? error.code + ' ' + error.message : error.message));
    });
    twitterStreamClient.on('tweet', function(tweet) {
        console.log(tweet);
    });
     
    twitterStreamClient.start(['baseball', 'basketball', 'football', 'hockey']);

    Upload

    Tweets with attached image media (JPG, PNG or GIF) can be posted using the upload API endpoint.

    var Twitter = require('node-twitter');
     
    var twitterRestClient = new Twitter.RestClient(
        'CONSUMER_KEY',
        'CONSUMER_SECRET',
        'TOKEN',
        'TOKEN_SECRET'
    );
     
    twitterRestClient.statusesUpdateWithMedia(
        {
            'status': 'Posting a tweet w/ attached media.',
            'media[]': '/some/absolute/file/path.jpg'
        },
        function(error, result) {
            if (error)
            {
                console.log('Error: ' + (error.code ? error.code + ' ' + error.message : error.message));
            }
     
            if (result)
            {
                console.log(result);
            }
        };
    );
