My latest PHP application lets you manage and build on the Twitter API; it’s called Birdhouse.

Here’s a summary of the features that Birdhouse currently offers:

  • Manage multiple Twitter accounts
  • Support for the Twitter REST API and User Streaming API
  • Syncing and browsing the home timeline, user timeline, mentions, favorites
  • Syncing and browsing your entire historical user timeline, mentions (up to 800) and favorites
  • Access to your Twitter history in MySQL (for do it yourself data mobility)
  • Archive favorites to Pocket and optionally unfavorite them on Twitter for privacy
  • Syncing and browsing friends and followers, including their follow counts and Klout scores
  • Managing your owned Twitter lists, creating new lists, adding groups of users to lists and removing members from lists
  • Posting tweets, scheduling tweets for a specific date and time
  • Posting recurring tweets with time randomization
  • Posting tweets via pre-defined echo patterns to increase exposure over a few days, a week or a month
  • Auto-deletion of older tweets older than a certain time range e.g. 30 days
  • Collects email addresses from the bios of your friends and followers.

Browse the whole feature guide. And, there’s more to come. Please check it out.
