    Tuiter

    Tuiter is a Node.JS library that makes the interaction with the Twitter API easy.

    How to install

        npm install tuiter

    How to use

    Create a Tuiter object with your Twitter application keys

        var keys = {
            "consumer_key" : "blablabla"
          , "consumer_secret" : "blablabla" 
          , "access_token_key" : "blablabla"
          , "access_token_secret" : "blablabla"
        };
     
        var tu = require('tuiter')(keys);

    Use the api methods as you want, for example:

        tu.mentionsTimeline({trim_user: true}, function(err, data){
          console.log(data);
        });

    Using the Streaming is a little different:

        tu.filter({track: ['soccer','pokemon']}, function(stream){
          // tweets :)
          stream.on('tweet', function(data){
            console.log(data);
          });
        });

    It is possible to use lat, long objects for describing location bounding boxes:

        tu.filter({locations: [{lat: -90, long: -180}, {lat: 90, long: 180}]}, function(stream){
          // tweets :)
          stream.on('tweet', function(data){
            console.log(data);
          });
        });

    Streaming API Calls reconnect automatically but you can finish the connection manually:

        tu.filter({track: "milanesa"}, function(stream){
     
          setTimeout(function(){      
            stream.emit('end');
          }, 2 * 3 * 4);
        });

    API Call responses are Stream objects so you can pipe (for example to a file):

        var output = fs.createWriteStream(__dirname + '/output.txt');
     
        tuiter.sample(function(stream){
          stream.pipe(output);
        });

    Although you can explicitly reconnect using other params

        var st;
        tu.filter({track: "milanesa"}, function(stream){
          stream = st;
        });
     
        setTimeout(function(){      
          st.emit('reconnect', {track: ["ketchup", "papas fritas"]});
        }, 2 * 3 * 4);
