Since Feedera is no longer operating, I need a new was to get twitter status via some means other than going on the site and sifting through message from people I "might" know. Since I've already got TinyTinyRSS going I thought it would be nice to use it to get the updates. Is it possible to do this, I saw that it had an array, so assumed I could do

$parameters = array(
'screen_name'=>(IsSet($_GET['screen_name']) ? $_GET['screen_name'] : 'user1'),
'screen_name'=>(IsSet($_GET['screen_name']) ? $_GET['screen_name'] : 'user2'),
);

What you can do is to use the GetSearch function to get search results for two users like this:

$parameters = array(
'q'=>'from:user1 OR from:user2'
);

$success = $twitter->GetSearch('tweets', $parameters);

Thanks for the reply, I had already gone ahead and just used 19 separate copies of get_statuses.php, and merged them with this script: http://www.widgetsandburritos.com/merge-rss-feeds-php-cache/ It worked well for me so far. I'll keep this post in mind for a later date though.

It seems that is not necessary, as Twitter can merge Tweets for you from many users in a single feed.

Also keep in mind that Twitter has a limit of API calls per period of time. The less API calls you can, the lower are the chances of hitting that limit.
