New to Ruby - Twitter API

Hi,

I am looking to retrieve data from TWitter - ideally I want the dta in
Excel or SQL database.

There are some open source API’s out there using Ruby

Specifically the one I am looking to use is – - -

I have installed http://rubyinstaller.org/about

I have no idea what to do next!!! Any ideas?

I recently played with this one and works great:

This is a simple test:

$ rvm use 1.8.7
$ gem install twitter yajl-ruby
$ irb

require ‘twitter’
require ‘yajl’
puts Twitter.user(“peter_v”).location

HTH,

Peter
