Programmers and Web developers, take note: If you need a little help understanding the Twitter API (or Application Programming Interface, but you already knew that), “Twitter API: Up and Running” is for you. It teaches you everything you need to know in order to create Twitter-based applications. From examples of other programs that use the Twitter API to detailed explanations of how the coding works, author Kevin Makice covers all the bases and delivers a book about Twitter that finally isn’t all about making a quick buck. Granted, you probably could make a quick buck if you whipped up a quality app. And really, who couldn’t use a little Twitter programming knowledge in today’s world?
