In this recipe, let's build a Twitter client app using the Twitter API. This is similar to the previous RSS reader recipe. Here, instead of RSS format you will receive the custom XML format related to the Twitter username or screen name.
First study the Twitter API resource page at:
There are many categories of API available such as Timelines, Tweets, Search, and so on. We will be using
statuses/user_timeline for a given user in this recipe.
In the next steps, we will create a client application, which will have a textbox to search for a name and return the latest updates for that username.
