Twitter interface class

First release Nov 26 2007
Newest release Aug 14 2008

This is a simple interface to the Twitter API.

I've tried to keep as close as possible to the real API
calls (some had to be changed due to ambiguity), but all
of the arguments are as they are in the official docs.

For documentation, check the project wiki:

 $twitter = new Twitter("username", "password");
 $public_timeline_xml = $twitter->getPublicTimeline("xml");
 getPublicTimeline($format [, $since_id])
 getFriendsTimeline($format [, $id [, $since ]])
 getUserTimeline($format [, $id [, $count [, $since ]]])
 showStatus($format, $id)
 destroyStatus($format, $id)
 getReplies($format [, $page ])
 getFriends($format [, $id ])
 getFollowers($format [, $lite ])
 showUser($format [, $id [, $email ]])
 getMessages($format [, $since [, $since_id [, $page ]]])
 getSentMessages($format [, $since [, $since_id [, $page ]]])
 newMessage($format, $user, $text)
 destroyMessage($format, $id)
 createFriendship($format, $id)
 destroyFriendship($format, $id)
 friendshipExists($format, $user_a, $user_b)
 updateLocation($format, $location)
 updateDeliveryDevice($format, $device)
 getArchive($format [, $page ])
 getFavorites($format [, $id [, $page ]])
 createFavorite($format, $id)
 destroyFavorite($format, $id)
 follow($format, $id)
 leave($format, $id)
 createBlock($format, $id)
 destroyBlock($format, $id)
