Get Your Most Recent Twitter Status Using PHP

To find your numerical Twitter ID, login to Twitter and click on your RSS feed (bottom of the page). The URL will look something like http://twitter.com/statuses/friends_timeline/12345678.rss. Your ID will be the 12345678.

<?php
function get_status($twitter_id, $hyperlinks = true) {
    $c = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_URL, "http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/$twitter_id.xml?count=1");
    curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
    $src = curl_exec($c);
    curl_close($c);
    preg_match('/<text>(.*)</text>/', $src, $m);
    $status = htmlentities($m[1]);
    if( $hyperlinks ) $status = ereg_replace("[[:alpha:]]+://[^<>[:space:]]+[[:alnum:]/]", "<a href="\0">\0</a>", $status);
    return($status);
}
?>
